I {heart} you a ton

It's our Wedding Anniversary on Saturday - 28 years!   
I was very young when I got***

Here's the card I made for hubby...

I dug around in my box of stamps and discovered a neglected set, from Simon Says Stamp.
It's called  Elephant Love, and the elephant and sentiment were perfect for what I wanted.
I played around with papers for ages, trying different combinations of pinks and reds, but nothing seemed to work and the little elephant didn't stand out like I wanted. In the end I found this scrap of grey digi paper and used some stripey, red ribbon to add a splash of colour.
The Memory Box landscape die helped to create a little scene - despite my house being a tad lopsided :-)
