Card Patterns Sketch #79

My anniversary with my DH is on Tuesday. We will be married 19 years this year.  I had this idea to do a card for our anniversary based on a school theme. I thought it would be fun to create it like it was the front of a book cover or paper from school where you doodled about the guy you were crushing on.

When we started dating I decided to finish off collage and go out and get a job with a big company. My boyfriend/future hubby was part of the reason why I pushed myself to do that and he helped fund a little of that education. :)

So this card is for my DH.  I used the sketch from the Card Patterns Challenge #79.

Here is the sketch:

and here is my anniversary card:

The silver is all from gum wrappers. Too funny right?  I wanted to doodle more on the card like you would on your book covers and I tried to write our initials on the main heart. Decided against it after a few failed attempts. But I think it is still a fun card and he will enjoy it.

Hope you have fun plans for the weekend. I am going to try to get in some more crafty time.
