Anniversary card

This is the card I made this weekend for my parents anniversary... I am late... I just totally missed it... they have been married for 52 yrs!!!   It is basic and says "happy anniversary" on the inside and leaves room for me to write a note.

After this post, I'll be absent for a few days.  There was a death in my family this weekend, and we will be taking off tomorrow for NB to be with family and for the funeral later this week.

Card Crafter's Circle Challenge #10 - "to die for" (use die cuts)
