"Charm"ing Anniversary

Can you guess what anniversary we are celebrating this year??? Love numbers, don't know why............And, as the Design Divas know, there is something about me and text---specifically what text ends up in my projects without purposely choosing. So I have to share about the picture. I used an old book as a background for the card to photograph it. I just randomly opened it up and put it down on the table with the card placed on top. As soon as I looked down I realized that it was opened to chapter 13. Simply unbelievable, yet no unexpected with my past experiences. Anyway, fun night planned with the hubby............

I am, of course, entering this card in CCC#17: Fragment Charms. This challenge is put on by the Lovely Linda L. over at StudioL3 She is a very busy woman doing some other wonderful things like a blog hop to support a fellow crafter/blogger's journey with Breast Cancer. If you haven't seen Linda's work or not familiar with her blog, you need to take a peek (preferrably when you have time to peruse awhile, you'll want to check out all that is there!)
Also, I would like to enter this in Papertake Weekly's challenge: 3 of a Kind. I figure, I have the number 13 on there 3 times, that counts, right?! And The Artistic Stamper:  Layers

Deanna, thanks for your sweet words, and happy, HAPPY anniversary! Lucky number 13 will bring you a great deal of happiness, I have no doubt, especially with the serendipitous way you opened the book right to that chapter! Spoooooky! And wonderful!

Your card is the perfect combination of masculine and gorgeous, and the clean lines and great imagery really work nicely for an anniversary look. I bet your man LOVES this! I hope you had a lovely, romantic evening, and wish you many more decades of happiness!
