Happy Anniversary!

Happy 7th Anniversary, Alycia & Mike. 
Seven years ago, my darling daughter married a wonderful man.  They now have 2 children: Olivia, 2 1/2 years and Lilly, 10 months.  Copper is the gift for the 7th year.  Keeping with this theme, I used some copper cardstock & ink when I cased Carly Robinson's card.

Here's a close-up of the flower panel.

 as well as the bottom right corner.  The sentiment is from Fillable Frames # 4 and the butterfly is from one of Martha Stewart's craft punches.

Here is the inside. I used my computer to write a message before I assembled the card.

Part of my gift is a gift card to a local restaurant.  Here is the gift card holder I made using the seed packet die and one of the Nestabilities labels. I sponged the little label with the copper ink to soften it. The ribbon is a metallic copper from my stash. 

I fussy cut one of the flowers and added a dimensional to serve as a closure.

 So they have a rememberance of their 7th anniversary, I purchased a copper butterfly stake for them to put in their garden.  I know my granddaughter, Olivia is going to like this since she is a fan of butterflies.  The only problem is, it is not purple; her favorite color.
Thanks for looking.

Love the co-ordinating set, and the copper butterfly is just a perfect addition to the card and gift card package.

What a lovely card. The coordinating envelope is also quite special. I bet the recipients will be thrilled. How could they not? Love the pearl parade the best. So sweet!
