70 Years of Wedded Bliss

When my auntie asked my to make an anniversary
card for her dear friends, of course I said yes.
When she told me it was for their
70th Wedding Anniversary I was speechless.
I can't even begin to image 70 years old,
let alone being married for 70 years.
How different their lives have been to young married
couples starting out today.
I've tried to capture how I imagine their romance would
have been, the antique script of the many love letters
they would have written each other, the weekly bunches
of roses - just to say I Love You and the hat pin from the
Sunday Best as they dressed for church,
SU - Stipple Rose, French Script, Cherish word
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Cream & Brown Cardstock
Spica Markers
Scallop & Circle Punches
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Hand Made Hat Pin
