Sketch 262~ Family Reunion, Cozy Cottage, Stampin up

 I am going submit this card to the challenge at: 
 This is another fantastic sketch.  I had to stretch my thinking cap a bit to get this to work out for me today, but it was fun.   I also want to congratulate the amazing top picks from sketch #261.. WOW!  Awesome job everyone.  The designers really did an amazing job with today's sketch. I tried my best and here is my take on it. 
I made this card today for my Husband.  We are celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary.    We wanted a  summer wedding Aug 4th to be exact, but my mom does not like summer weddings so we had to change the date.  Just so ya all know.. it's always been a regret, but what's a gal to do, we celebrate on August 4th too, that is the day we actually met.  So it's like we celebrate 2 anniversaries.  Quick story we met at a truck show at the race tracks.  Two young kids from two different towns,  meeting in the popcorn line. .. the rest is history you might say.   
Today's card I embossed the background with hearts and then did so again on a scrap paper, so I could cut out a few and paste them on the front of this card to give it a bit more dimension.  I then stamped  the little house and sentiment from Stampin ups Cozy Cottage.  I die cut out the circles and layered the card in navy blue.   I love how the cute outdoor chairs are perfect for lovebirds on their anniversary 💑.  I just didn't know what to do with the top of the circle.. because I wanted to stay close to the sketch as possible, I thought about adding flowers, but it looked awkward, then I thought about hearts to kind of go with the backround, but nope didn't like it.. so being for my husband I found my stampin up's Family Reunion set and chose "husband"  for a bit of a banner.  That looked the best.  YAY❕  It was a lot of coloring and I think I got quite high from the smell.. haha seriously a headache though. 
Any ways, I also wanted to share two pictures of the flowers my sweetheart gave me.  💘
Thank you all for stopping by for a visit. 
Sorry I was a bit long winded today.  The next couple posts should be shorter.  I made 2 other cards today (so far).  SO I hope you can come back and check those out too. 
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping
