Happy Anniversary to the Perfect Pair!

My parents celebrated their 40th anniversary Friday aboard an Alaskan cruise. They got back last night so I thought that today would be a good day to do my anniversary post for them. They are amazing. They got married so young, but have managed to stick together with love and respect. I am in awe of their relationship. It hasn't always been easy for them, but they have always managed through it together and I admire and love them so much for that.

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!!!

For my final sneak peek for the Unity Stamp Co. June kit of the month, the image and phrase was perfect for an anniversary card for my parents. I used this morning's CPS sketch challenge (#118). I just changed up the dimensions a bit to make it work with this gorgeous pear tree stamp image.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. June kit of the month
*K&Company Wild Raspberry collection
*Making Memories ledger paper
*watercolor pencils
*Marvy Uchida scallop punch
*copper brads
*Memories brown inkpad
*corner punch
*ribbon

For this Perfect pair sentiment, this kit is AWESOME! These are 2 separate stamps, but there is also pear spelled like the fruit so you can go for an elegant look (like what I was trying to do here) or a more fun, punny look if you want a more playful card. Angela thinks of everything!! AND you can use that "Perfect" on it's own (I love that font!)
