A Lovely Anniversary

I honestly don't know "why" I wanted to use this image for this couple as they live on the outskirts of a large city and have never lived in the country. I guess my mind works in mysterious ways LOL!

I think the true inspiration for this card was actually on High Hopes website for use of the release but I had to go to the maker's site to find it again! http://6wackywomen.blogspot.com/2009/03/down-on-farm.html How gorgeous is that card! I just wish I had read her blog entry about time consuming before I attempted mine! LOL - I know mine isn't even a patch on the original but that was my inspiration. I did think about doing a stair step card, however as this was going in the international postal system I thought it would probably make it too uneven for the journey. Because I put a little bitty bow on it I already had to put bubble wrap on it! - so I hope it gets to its destination relatively undestroyed.
