Happy Anniversary!!!

My parents are celebrating their 32nd Wedding Anniversary today. How exciting, huh?!!!! So I decided to make them a cute little card using a Pink Cats Studio stamp, I figured Lily and Billy would be the perfect couple for this card, given that they have already received an Anniversary Card using Paper Pretties Sealed with a kiss, Lexi and Luke. I got to mix it up a bit.

So here is what I came up with. I was inspired by Amy Sheffer's Congrats card so I decided that I would CASE it and use her template. The template is absolutely gorgeous and it came out just right, but I'm not sure that my image goes well with how pretty the template is. I'm thinking Lexi and Luke would have looked better with this template but I really wanted to use Lilly and Billy so here is what I got.

I think it's still pretty cute, maybe I just had to take a step back and look at it from afar.
