17th anniversary

There doesn't seem to be a traditional gift for a 17th anniversarry but the modern gift is furniture. 
Now much as I would like to give a gift of furniture I think it is something very personal and after 17 years of marriage not something you would expect a couple to need . 

With this in mind I decided to compromise and send some furniture  on a card at least that way it won't take up much room and when they are fed up of it, it can be recycled  or thrown away.

I used a white base card ,a black and silver matt and a darkroom 'happy anniversary' sentiment stamped in black ink. I drew a rough design of a chair in pencil which I erased when the ink was dry. I used scraps of paper to mask areas I didn't want to stamp and think it turned out quite well, at least I don't think the couple will get another card like it, just hope they realise what it represents (maybe I should put a note inside explaining,lol).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Creatalicious - anything goes optional anniversary

The corrosive challenge -anything goes 

Sweet stampin' - wedding /anniversary/love

Fantastic job. I was coming to say this was so creative. I appreciate it even more now knowing it's for the couple celebrating "furniture". See, my mom does that for us every year. Gets us something related to the category for that year. So very cool. Hope they appreciate it.

What a truly clever card, Julye. I can't imagine how you masked this to get it to look like a perfect chair but you did a wonderful job. I'm so glad you shared this at ATSM.
