#bestdayever 37

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Today is 5/5 and since the day and month are very rarely the same number, May has a special kind of challenge in mind! It's a pick-your adventure kind of challenge where you have to pick five! You need to "pick five" things TOTAL to create your project or you need to use five of something on your project.
I challenged myself to create a greeting card using five main products. Since this card is rather simple without a lot of "fluff", I made it for my husband for our upcoming wedding anniversary celebration. I pieced pretty patterned paper from the Tim Holtz Wallflower collection, stitched it on to a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock, 
I embellished with a couple of distressed die cut mini hearts along with a beautiful rose charm and completed it with a hashtag sentiment:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
Be Sweet ;)
