Anniversary 3D Paper Piecing Card

Look like us!
Today is my 20th Wedding Anniversary! It is hard to believe we have been together that long!  How time flies! I bought this stamp with our anniversary in mind.  My husband, Tom loves golf!  I also play but not as much as he does!  I hope to play more after I retire.  I imagine this is what we will look like in just a few short years!   I used the 3D paper piecing that Mariksa does on her blog, Sending you a little Smile.
Here is a link to her blog and her wonderful cards! She has also done a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers.
Up close!
I love how my card turned out.  I still need to practice this technique!  Don't look too close or you will see my boo boos.  It is fun to see it come together as you glue the pieces on.  I used the syringe that Mariksa uses since there can be very small pieces to glue on.  I think I may have pressed down just a little too much but I love it anyway!   The sentiment is on the back of the card.  It is hard to take pictures to show the effect- here is a little closer view. 

I just realized I don't have any Wedding pictures on line!  I will have to scan some pictures of that day!  We had a quiet wedding in a church with a couple of friends standing up for us.  Later we had a back yard celebration and invited family and friends.  I will search for those pictures and share them with you.  Tonight we are going to dinner with family but today I will just relish the memories of the last 20 years!
