I could not resist taking a quick stop in Michael's today though, I still have a couple of gift cards left over from Christmas so I am cheating and saying it is really not spending :). Anyway, I found a couple of 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper pads that I wanted to play with.
My In-laws have their 47th wedding anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks so I put together a card to pop in the mail.
I used multiple layers and inked the edges, I added some ribbon and a ribbon glide. I cut a small insert for the ribbon glide to cover the backing and finished with the gem. The sentiment was printed from MS Word.
Supplies: Natural white and brown card stock, Designer Paper -My Mind's Eye, ribbon. recollection gem, embossing folder, ribbon glide.
