Melanie's 2-year anniversary blog hop

Melanie Muenchinger is celebrating two years of blogging and illustrating for Gina K Designs, and today she has invited 25 designers and YOU to join the party!

Here is my card using A Year of Flowers, my favorite Melanie set. I stamped the flower images on Really Red textured cardstock using white pigment ink and cut them out. The sentiment is from my Elegant Post set. My husband and I will be celebrating our 14th anniversary in two weeks. It's hard to believe; it feels just like yesterday. These last 14 years have been the best years of my life. God is good! This card will go to my wonderful and ever-so-patient hubby :-).
