Happy Anniversary

Hi peeps! Today is our 22nd wedding anniversary and I thought I'd share the card I made for John.  He's kind of a plain guy, he doesn't like fussy stuff, so I took Linda's FMS sketch:
 
and came up with this:


My base is Seaside Spray, and the main panel is a piece of Sand & Sea DSP, on which I stamped a lighthouse silhouette from Sweet & Sassy with some trees in the background:


I was a bit surprised; after stamping the lighthouse in Misty Moonlight, I stamped the trees in the background with Seaside Spray ink, and it actually turned the lighthouse a lighter shade...which looks kind of cool!  The sentiment is from Many Mates, and the coordinating "mate" was stamped below:

I also stamped some "splashes" on the card base with the splash stamp from Gorgeous Grunge since I still had it laying on my desk from a couple of cards ago!  Thanks for popping in today---be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"  John 14:6

This is gorgeous, LeAnne! Sort of foggy and misty nautical! Very "misterious"! Love it!

This is such a wonderful scene and sentiment LeAnne, perfect card for an anniversary! I know my husband would love something like this as well (e.g. beautiful but not too mushy LOL!). Big congratulations on 22 years!
