Anniversary Card | Mini Van Dreams

Anniversary Card

It’s been awhile since I have shared a card tutorial, so I wanted to share my Anniversary Card!  (Spoiler alert, Don!)  This was one of my fair cards, but for the life of me I can’t remember if I won anything for it or not.  I think Dee stole this ribbon away from me, but it was well-deserved!  While this card looks difficult, it is rather easy.  The most difficult part is getting the brads in the paper!  I promise!
