Another Anniversary card

......this one for my husband this year.

supplies: kraft, blue, Green Leaf and Green Apple card stock, (retired) MFT Spring Wreath die, (retired) Memory Box Perched Reed Bird, Simon's Happy clear stamps, heart punch, twine, faded jeans and abandoned coral distress oxide inks, Colorbox Frost White cat's eye ink pad, tea dye distress ink

This bird die has always been a favorite of mine - it fits into most wreaths or branches, so I first cut out 2 of him from desert storm kraft card and inked them to resemble bluebirds.  I cut 2 shades of green for my wreath, and, influenced by Pam's 2nd card in THIS post, sponged some tea dye distress ink around the wreath and the edges of my card.   

It's been 47 years for us - how about you?

Such a beautiful card Lyn, love how you have done the birds so very pretty. Though we have been together longer we are only at the infancy of our marriage 21 years. But I love to watch the love of my parents coming up on their 66th year. Though mum is lost in her own world she still knows his smell and touch and I see the love that shines out of dads eyes each day when he visits her in the cottage. May we all have such love.
