Happy Anniversary

Hi there! I had some time to get crafty today and decided to ink up a couple of my neglected stamps sets from Papertrey Ink!  

I used the layout from Retro Sketches 3 and the new color story from the Play Date Cafe Challenge!

(Note: I scored horizontal lines along the top and bottom edges of the sentiment panel, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. One of these days I'm going to get my light box situation straightened out so my photos will turn out better.)

I'm going to send this to my parents for their anniversary! Hope they like it!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!
