warm wishes, mr & mrs

This anniversary card was inspired by the cute "get well soon" robot card in SU's current catty on page 82 and Picture Perfect Creations' PPC13 color challenge - to use basic black, basic gray, green galore, and whisper white on a card. I'd just been telling my stampin' buddy Kimmi about this cute stamp set, Together Forever, as her daughter recently became engaged. I love this dark gray card stock, and the black, white, and a splash of color combination, so this color challenge was right up my alley ... and I hadn't realized 'til now just how close this green was to my blog's background color!

stamps: SU's Full of Life, Hugs & Wishes, Simply Said, and Together Forever; paper: SU's Basic Gray, Green Galore, Whisper White card stocks; ink: Color Box's Silver, Ranger's Black Soot distress ink; accessories: pretty satin ribbon from an unknown ribbon share
