An Autumn Anniversary

My brother and his wife have an anniversary coming up soon.  As soon as I saw this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge, I knew it would be perfect for their card.


The black and white is perfect for them.  They have family photos and photos from their travels on their walls - all in black and white.  It's a wonderful look.  They had their wedding in the autumn and used fall colors so I wanted to honor that with a little orange.  

The three panels on this week's retrosketch were perfect for Papertrey Ink's Take Three die.  I have all of the seasonal sets that go with the die - and, funny enough, I used the winter stamps for this fall card!

Autumn Anniversary


  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Take Three: Winter, Tag-Its 5 (sentiment)
  • Paper: black, Black Market Paper Ebony and Alabaster
  • Ink: Papertrey Ink Canyon Clay
  • Accessories: Papertrey Ink Canyon Clay satin ribbon and button, misc twine, Cuttlebug dot embossing folder

This is lovely. I'm so impressed that it doesn't read halloween with using those colors.

Very classy Kim! The pop of orange is just right. Might need to case this for my own anniversary card in october - 15yrs! x

I really like the rounded corners on the recessed squares! The heart-shaped button beautifully accents those orange prints too, and your Brother and SIL are going to love this beautiful card made especially with them in mind :)
