You Belong Together

My mom and dad celebrated their 46th (yes, 46th!) wedding anniversary earlier this week.  That event definitely called for a card, so I put this sweet one together based on the current Mojo Monday sketch.

You Belong Together card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn Fawn
I used Lawn Fawn's Milk and Cookies set for the image panel.  Cookies and milk are perfect together, just like my parents!  The set's matching dies made it easy to get the pieces together quickly.  To go with the card's love theme, I stamped a trio of tiny hearts on the panel in pink pigment ink.

I cut two fishtail flag strips from coordinating patterns from a Glitz paper pad to go behind the image.  The panels were arranged on a long light blue panel.  I combined the "you" from the Here's the Scoop set with the "belong together" from the Milk and Cookies set to get my custom sentiment for the bottom of the card.  The finished panel was adhered to a white card base. My mom and dad are currently away on a trip, but this will be waiting for them when they return.

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Lawn Fawn Milk and Cookies and Here's the Scoop stamp sets, Milk and Cookies dies; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Memento Luxe Rose Bud ink; Glitz Designs Felicity 6x6 paper pad; Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Bashful Blue and Regal Rose cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); markers (Copic); Fishtail Flag Stax and Fishtail Flag Layers Stax dies (My Favorite Things)
