Dear Hearts

The House Mouse Challenge of the week is to design an Anniversary or Wedding Card -- what could be more fun and gratifying? -- to celebrate both new and ongoing commitments of the heart. Check out the House Mouse design team's amazing postings here. My son's evaluation of this card is "...hmmm, a little busy." Ahh, but his girlfriend on the other hand, thought it was perfect. She is in the know that wedding anniversaries should be commemorated with lace, roses, ribbons, hearts, and flourishes! This house mouse image was holding jelly beans in his hands and one wrapped in his tail before I got a hold of him with an Exacto knife. The double hearts are Sizzix die cuts with the inner heart embossed with Cuttlebug. The Happy Anniversary is an unmounted stamp (origin unknown) and the roses are compliments of Inkadinkado. Married Dear Hearts everywhere -- Happy Anniversary!

This is gorgeous Martha - I love how you've use the MS border punch and that image is stunning on black. Very creative with the flower in place of jelly beans.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us at HM&F.

Awwww, how cute is that? I love how you've swapped out the jelly beans for a flower. What did you use to make the embossed gold on this adorable creation?
