Happy 5th Anniversary!

Five years ago today, I went on my last first date ever! Phillip and I had met online and chatted for a week or so before meeting each other at the Austin Pride festival on June 5, 2010. He asked to take me out on our first date two days later to Peter Pan Minigolf, followed by Amy's Ice Cream. We're now five months away from our wedding, and I couldn't be happier!

Here's the card I made him.

On the envelope, I stamped my hand-carved groom twice, and a number of phrases like "best friend, love of my life, soon, my husband, etc."... Except I accidentally used a d in place of a b in my haste to finish it early yesterday morning!

The background was made with a hero arts stencil, and the succulents and coordinating dies are Lawn Fawn's "Stuck On You" set. The letters were an ABC Lawn Fawn set and I used hearts from a few of LF's other sets. Paper was paper bag, superfine softwhite, and chartreuse from Paper Source. I borrowed the idea for the card from another Lawn Fawnie I found on Pinterest! :)
