A simple card made using the PTI Simply Jane dies - I have to tell you I'm addicted to these dies, since you haven't seen all the other cards I've made with them yet.
My brother and SIL's first wedding anniversary is coming up, so I wanted to have a card ready for them...

The sentiment is embossed - I love that Ranger inks can be used for that, and I only discovered it a little while back, while randomly looking at the bottom of the ink pad. Handy dandy, if I do say so. :)

Made for this weeks CAS-ual Fridays challenge (one each of sentiment, pattern, and image) and ABC DT (spring - weddings are very spring ;)).

Thanks so much for stopping in today, and happy feast of St. Joseph!

Cardstock: Strathamore
Patterned paper: Crate Paper 'Portrait'
Stamp: Hero Arts 'Everyday Sayings'
Ink: Ranger
Other: embossing powder (Martha Stewart)

Tools: trimmer, adhesive, scissors, Simply Jane die, Cuttlebug, heat gun
