Anniversary + Sketch + Monochromatic Green

Hello Friends!
I'm back after a little break. Hubby & I went to Gulf Shores again to visit my cousin. I will post some pictures of our trip on my other blog, Picture This: Everyday Beauty. We were gone about 12 days...Wow! I'm not used to being away from my craftroom that long! It took me a while to get back in the groove. Still haven't figured out how to get back in the house-cleaning groove! LOL
Anyway, I needed a couple cards, one for my daughter and son-in-law's anniversary and the other is a sympathy card. Here is the first one:

Believe it or not, I don't have a "Happy Anniversary" stamp...yet. So I found this one and thought it would fit nicely with a green color scheme. I am entering this card in the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #189 and they added a "twist" this time, which must be done in Monochromatic Green. 
Here's the sketch:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #189
Also entering this in - Challenge #136- Green - Challenge #211 "Go Green!" - #198 "Color Challenge- Green"

And here is my little list of ingredients:
Spellbinders die - "Foliage"*
Sizzix TH die - "Tattered Flower Garland"*
Washi Tape - Green*
DP's are Paper Studio (all are from my scrap box!)
Pear stamp & sentiment is Studio G
Inks are Memento* & Studio G
Pale green pearls are Zva Creative
Button, from my stash
*These are all the things I got at my favorite online craft store

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are all having a lovely day!

Absolutely gorgeous, Sandie! Do you know, I think nearly every stamper is missing SOMETHING - I don't have a single Easter sentiment. Every year I realize it, and every year by the time Easter gets closer it's too late to order one, and the cycle continues. lol!
This pear pun is one of my favourites for lovey cards - it's just perfect :) Thanks so much for playing along with us & getting GREEN at Tuesday Morning Sketches :)
