LOVE will keep us together

I had some crafting time this past weekend - and was able to make several cards that I'll be posting this week.  
Here's one for today - Kent and I will be celebrating our 18th anniversary on June 21 (first day of summer - and can I just say, the day of our wedding must have been 100 degrees with no airconditioning in the church - where we also had our small reception!) - I always make my card for him (of course!) and I knew I had to get going on this years as it's coming up fast!  (and I know you are all now singing that song - well the older ones amongst us anyway!)
I used the LOVE die and a stamp set from PTI - both called Wonderful Words: Love.  I decided to go with greens/blues to keep it more masculine for dear hubby.  I made the LOVE thicker by cutting it 4 times out of white and once out of Tropical Teal - then glued them all together.  Here's a side view so you can see the thickness.
And just 'cause some people like to know -  here's what I stamped on the inside - stamps from Hero Arts and Lil' Inker Designs.
My card was inspired by two challenges:
Just Us Girls - Stacked Die Cuts
Stamps:  Wonderful Words: Love - PTI, inside card - Happy Anniversary from Hero Arts, It Feels like Just Yesterday from It's Today, Right? from Lil'Inker Designs.
Paper:  White, Tropical Teal, Text Style/Green Boutique - PTI
Ink:  Tropical Teal - PTI
Accessories:  square punch - Creative Memories,  Wonderful Words - Love die - PTI, Scotch Quick Dry adhesive.
