Sunflower Birthday

Hey there! Happy Thursday! Today I have a little birthday card for you. The focal image is from PTI's Round and Round Anniversary set. The sentiment is from Giga Guidelines. The background is the new Argyle set. I stamped the background with lemon tart and chocolate. Sentiment is also in chocolate. Focal point is in spring moss and summer sunrise. There a bit of bitty boxes ripe avocado on the bottom. Two little dark chocolate buttons make up the center of the flowers. Everything below this is just random stuff so if you are just here for the card you might not want to read the rest...
I was scanning photos last night to share on Facebook. I love old photos, old letters, old anything... I have boxes full. Anyway I found one of my first pictures of me and my hubby....This was in my dorm room in 1993. We got married in 1995. I think I was 20 in this picture. I still have that shirt and I dont think it would go over my head anymore! LOL! And here we are now:
This is at his sister's wedding last December. Funny how you look a little different after 17 years!

Oh you look like such a happy pair Michele. I can totally see you in your younger days, but your hubby sure looks different! Handsome fella!
I love old photos too...very nostalgic.
Oh and your card is cute too! lol

Michele those pictures are great. It's funny how you two have kinda swapped poses in the photos. He's leaning like you were in the first shot and your hand is wrapped around like his. Too cute.
Anyhow, the card is lovely too. Great argyle patterned you stamped.

It's so fun to look at "then" and "now" pictures. You still look happy after all these years.
