Love You Always Card

Love You Always Card

I created this beautiful card for my husband for our anniversary.  I chose to use purples and golds as those were the colors we had at our wedding.

Close-up Love You Always Card

The Foil Polka Dot Paper as well as the two pennants (the Rose and Foil Stripe) are all from this month’s Live Beautifully Collection.  It’s awesome how easily they work with other papers to create a stunning finished product.

But don’t forget this paper collection is only available for another 5 days.  You can get your own Live Beautifully Paper Collection on MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.
