Best Wishes

I made this card for an upcoming anniversary. I like to use Best Wishes on the front and then I can put the usually Happy Anniversary on the inside. I'm always thinking about what the inside of the card will say. Some crafters I know say leave them blank so people can put their own message or write a note on the inside. Every time I do that I end up writing Happy Anniversary love husband and I. I would rather it already have the sentiment inside so people don't have to read my poor handwriting. So now you know that best wishes cards are an easy out for the inside. You could use it for and I have for birthdays, get wells, graduation, Mother's or Father's Day cards, goodbye, missing you, thank you, etc.

My card is pretty simple today. The darker blue DP is by Papertrey ink and the lighter blues by Stampin Up {both paper pads are old}. I stamped the large Hero Arts branch with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with brown/copper Ranger embossing powder. The birdhouse was done the same as the branch just on white paper and then fussy cut out. The bird and sentiment are stamped with yellow Versa Color pigment ink and then cut outs the ribbon is from Stampin Up-I turned the polka dots upside down.

Thanks for looking.
