Mama Elephant Photo Challenge

Oooohh....pretty, right?

My husband and I are going to NY this weekend for my grandparents' 65th wedding anniversary- the whole family is coming together from far and wide to celebrate!  I used this great image from the Mama Elephant photo challenge as inspiration to create my card:

I created a mask for the X and O (the X was two intersecting strips of cardstock, and I hand-cut the O after quickly sketching it), and sprayed with some glimmer mist. You can't really see in the photo, but it is dazzling!

I realize that this card is definitely younger-looking, and might not scream "elderly anniversary"....but my grandparents are fun and spunky (and definitely don't act like they are in their 80s and 90s), so I think it works :)

Not shown? The envelope, which I cut using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board. I stamped the back with an image from the Mama Elephant "Smitten" set- those cute hands in the shape of a heart! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
