Country/Rustic Style Anniversary Card

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Another gloomy day here in south central PA. Today will make the 4th day in a row.
I am in need of some sunshine to help motivate me to get my housework done.
My hubby is back to work today and his schedule is looking crazy busy for the next 2 weeks.

Anyways, my customer asked me to make a special card for her daughter's upcoming anniversary. She wanted something with an oil can on. I think this image could be used as an oil can. It comes from an old set called Thoughts of Father from 2008.

The story behind the oil can is that her daughter had cleaned out a bunch of old oil cans that her father had in the garage from years ago.She cleaned them up and planted flowers in them and sat them outside this spring and my customer said they looked so nice. 
I thought about this for a few days and went with something rustic with using this cool patterned paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. I stamped my image & sentiment in Soft Suede and added a pop of color with the Calypso Coral flower beside the sentiment. I think the Linen Thread wrapped up the country/rustic card nicely.

Happy Anniversary Card:

Stamps: Timeless Love (sentiment), Thoughts of Father (2008)
Ink: Soft Suede
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, The Paper Studio DSP (Hobby Lobby)
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, SU Flower Punch, White Pearl, Linen Thread, Glue Dot, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I hope my customer likes this as much as I do!

My thoughts today.....

It just so happens i'm having taco's tonight for supper!

That's all for today!
Off to get my housework started.

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!

If I was not clear enough with my words on FB... I love this card! I may be casing it some day real soon! I love everything... the twine, the wood, the font of the sentiment, the colors, and I do not have that image but I will look for something similar. Love, love, love!

I just love this card with the rustic wooden background and the story behind the oil can is so endearing :) I love that pop of brilliant color with that single flower - it's really a great card!! Sunshine intermittently tomorrow I hear, but Thursday will be a washout :( Oh well, it beats the heatwave we had last week for 3 days! Whew!
