Anniversary Card

Sometimes I can't help myself.  I'll feel a compulsion to make something besides trouble. 

This card was for my daughter and son-in-law on their second anniversary.  I really wanted to make a card with a moveable wheel--you know, the kind you buy for a child that allows you to change the wheel to reflect the correct age.  I figured if I stamped "Happy Anniversary" and added a wheel with "2nd, 3rd, 4th", etc., I wouldn't need to make another card for several years.  (And that's how long it seems to take me to think up an idea when I need to design a card.)

But I have a short attention span, so this is what I ended up with.  I used a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die (Ornamentals, I think) for the shape, and added the lock and key from the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Movers and Shapers line, which I heat-embossed to give the appearance of metal.  I used a lot of kraft paper to keep it from looking too girly (after all, it really was for both of them).

Thanks for looking!
