My Private Zoo - Non Traditional Anniversary Card

 I would like to share this card that I am going to give to my husband for our anniversary.  I LOVE the image, so beautifully drawn!  But one of the sentiments in this set, “Our Private Zoo” struck me as a funny way to describe the often crazy times that a couple goes through with marriage and parenting and even pets.  I think DH is going to get a kick out if it! (As an aside, he always gets me a super sappy card, but knows that I have a weird sense of humor!)

The background was easily accomplished with a Multi color Kaleidacolor Inkpad in Creole Spice brayered over glossy cardstock.  I love the way glossy cardstock looks but every time I forget that it is harder to photograph!  I think I got it okay this time.  I stamped the GORGEOUS safari scene over top with Archival Ink and then just added the sentiment.  There was no need to overdo this card, I think it is perfect in its simple form.

This stamp set is called Wildlife Rubber Stamp set and it can be found in the Blank Page Muse store.  You can always use my affiliate code BPMHeidi to save 15% off your order there and at the I Brake for Stamps store!
