Friends of Speedy TV - Happy Anniversary

I can't believe it is Monday again all ready and time for Mark's Finest Papers Friends of Speedy TV's second challenge. This week our challenge is to make an anniversary card. This is an easy card but I made it take forever and ever. I tried  an embellishment I really wanted to use. No, it would not work. After a day or two of fooling around with this card, I went back to the beginning...isn't that the way it always goes? This should have been, could have been, and would have been a 10-15 minute card...tops.

I am using a Mark's Finest Papers stamp set called Just Dandy. Love those dandelions. My sentiment is from MFP Happy Pansies.  The border punch is Martha Stewart called Eyelet Lace. I'm using PTI white cardstock and a black cardstock from Hobby Lobby.

Hope you'll come over to MFP Speedy TV and join our challenge.

This is stunning, so elegant!!! Don't feel alone, I can't tell you how many times I've fussed with what should have been a quick and easy card only to put it up and go back to it later.

This is really beautiful! I totally know the feeling of when I fiddle with things for ages and my original idea is best!

Black and white makes me happy! I like the elegance, those dandelions (so glad I have that set), and that simple layout.
