“Pea Pod Anniversary”


Today’s card is for the Mid Week Throw Down Challenge for Operation Write Home.  The Challenge was to make anniversary cards.

I like to make cards both men and women would feel comfortable sending to their respective spouses/partners.  For some reason, peas and carrots together, ala “Forrest Gump,” came to mind.  I used the punch art technique to complete this card.  The recipe can be found below:
