Not your typical anniversary card

A little disturbing? Perhaps.
But, if you knew the person that I made this card for, you'd think it was PERFECT!

A good friend of mine just celebrated her 13th wedding anniversary. She collects funky masks and likes "day of the dead" stuff. When it came time to make a special card for her, I knew it had to be unique. She's not really a Hallmark kind of girl if you know what I mean - and that's why I love her!

I used two different circles for the skull and stitched them together. For the sentiment, I printed up "Til death do you part" on my computer and stamped some flourishes around it.Have no fear, I'll be back to my "normal" projects tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by,

Mackenzie -- I love this! :) I know someone I could make a card like that for too -- perfect. Happy Anniversary to your friends! :)

LOVE it!!!! Sewing the two circles together was "absolutely 'RILLIANT" as my 4-year-old would say - and I love the colours you used, too. Perfect for the 13th anniversary!

LOL! It is a bit disturbing but if it's perfect for the person. . .then it's a great anniversary card. Gotta make the cards based on a person's taste. I daughter would love a card like this. . .she's into rock, skulls and stuff. I love what you did with the eyes. ..great use of embellies!
