Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Cherry Bomb

It's the first of July, which means it is Canada Day, AND my 20th wedding anniversary!!!  Seconded by first Curtain Call Challenge of the month.

I used this challenge to create an anniversary card for my hubby as the colours were masculine (I tweaked the blue to a navy blue rather than the bright blue) and were perfect for creating him a card.   Hard to believe it has been 20 years!  Where does the time go??!!   We married later in life and have been blessed with two kids, ups, downs, new business ventures, challenges, loss, celebrations, victories, and a whole lot more over the course of those twenty years.  The anchor in the midst of it all has been first and foremost been our love for God, as well as our love and respect for each other and always, always ensuring we communicate with each other.

Have fun with the challenge and I look forward to seeing your creations in the Curtain Call gallery.


What's In It?
 Paper:   Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Basic Black (Stampin' Up), Costco DP
 Accessories:  Number and Word Dies (PTI), Crimper (Fiskars), Heart Punch (Marvy), Twine,  Dimensionals

Nothing like being incredibly behind in commenting! Sheesh! June was a blur and July is passing all too quickly (and frantically!). I'm here now, going for a saunter on this sunny, yet blow-me-down-the-road windy day! Belated Happy 20th Anniversary! The time travels quickly, doesn't it! We married much, MUCH later in life, and already, we're nearing our 5th anniversary in August! Hopefully, no bike races planned to officiate at or for my husband to race, as as been the case the last three years. In fact, I think we squeezed in our wedding between two bike races weekends *grin* Your card for your husband: striking, handsome and most certainly infused with love!
