my anniversary is coming!

and the week rolls on...
today's challenge at 365 Cards is an ad colour inspiration. i totally love these colours, and since tomorrow is my 3rd anniversary, i decided to make a great card for my husband. (i've been putting if off because i just wasn't inspired yet - it's gotta be very special for him!) he's a wonderful guy, and i can't believe we've been married 3 years already! times sure flies when you're blissfully happy...
i took the photo outside on our back lawn. it's so nice to have a yard! we moved into our townhouse in september so now that the weather is warm we're really starting to enjoy it. my husband matthew has a green thumb so the garden is coming along very nicely!

stuff used:
DCWV - Retro circle notecards
La Creme cardstock stack
Tim Holtz - harlequin elements grungeboard
Tsukineko - Encore green tea ink
Judikins - Diamond glaze
Martha Stewart - aquamarine glitter
Kolette Hall - heart anniversary stamp
PSX - clear ep
