Best Wishes for 2nd anniversary!
This special gal is my oldest niece who is also my god-daughter. She's chosen blues and browns as her main color combo for her interior decorating so I kept that in mind as I pulled possibilities from my growing stash. The bottom portion has 2 patterned papers and 3 solid colors of cardstock (cocoa, ivory, and chocolate) for 5 stripes instead of the 7 shown in the sketch.
On the left side is a very small image of the sketch layout I used for this card made last week or so. It is from Repeat Impressions and #J3118. I really liked it because I had a scraps challenge to make a card for a design team and thought I could use different patterned papers to make the striped section as my version. So this is my 2nd card made with this layout. (A week ago almost I showed a card that used this layout turned on its side and I used a bear with I heart U image in place of the large stitched circle.) I also opted to not use the large circle area and instead put a simple sentiment within that dividing band as seen with "for the Mr. & Mrs." and the stenciled hearts.

This happy mail is now on its way to them. Back to crafting for either a design team challenge or birthday cards for relatives! Becca
