Life Would Be Unbearable...

Friday was my wedding anniversary. Hubby and I have been married 36 years (of course I got married when I was 12). We met in California when we were both attached to the 54th Military Police Company at Fort Ord.
So I made this anniversary card for hubby. I used a Squigglefly digi image called Polar Bears by artist Deena Parreault. I used it because the inside of my card has the sentiment: "Life would be unbearable without you in it!"
I love using all shades of teal, so I decided to go with a color-blocking card design. It really is a very simple clean card, which I do very rarely, but sometimes you know you have to change up your style so you don't get into a slump.
Have a Squigglefly image and an idea for a card? Come join the new challenge at the Squigglefly Challenge Blog:
"Go to the Corner! Ever get told that by your teacher? Well I am telling you now because that is the challenge this week! Let's see a wonderful card and top it off some fun decor in the corner. A die cut, embellishment, punch? I can't wait to check out what you make!"
As you can see, I used both white and black pearls in my corners to jazz up the blocks of color. So, what are YOU going to put into your corners for this challenge? Whatever you decide on, have fun and keep crafting!
