A Personalized Gift

Hi Friends!
Today I have my second commissioned card to show you...commissioned in the sense that someone asked me to create something for them and I did and I love how it turned out!! After seeing some of my cards online, my cousin Alicia asked me if I might have some inspiration to create a special something for her upcoming wedding anniversary.
My answer was, "oh yes, of course!!" I was a little bit intimidated at first by the project but inspiration quickly came once she sent me some posters to look at. I included the sentiment as an insert so that she would have room to write her love note inside the card and not have to worry about working around it. I hope that it helps to adequately celebrate such a special day and I look forward to my next "project."
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look!

Stamps: SU! Frames and Flourishes, SU! Anniversary sentiment, Misc sentiment
Paper: My Mind's Eye Jen Wilson's 29th Street Market PP, Creative Imaginations PP, AC textured CS
Image: c/o The Beatles, poster found here
Embies: SU! Punch, Basic Grey Buttons, Twine, Paper Distresser
