I was drawn to the Thank My Lucky Stars journaling card. It sums up how I feel about my marriage. I like to use a bold statement on a page, usually one based on typography, so my feelings really pop out. I used this selfie alongside my card, staggering them.
I used the cork word, blessed, because it is large and colorful. I really like the rounded edges since I have many straight lines on the page. I layered it with the scalloped edge that has the heart on it. I also balanced out the title with the cork stars.
I used the pretty blue because I loved the contrast against the gray cardstock. I purposefully cut a strip of the heart paper and put it across the top. I chose other fun elements like the Happy cutout and the ticket. I pick elements that convey my message.
I added journaling to record my thoughts about serendipity. It kinda just happened with Steve. And it was when I least expected it. Here we are eleven years later, happier than ever. I call that lucky.
