Just ducky!

It is pouring outside right now.  Perfect weather for posting a duck card.

I just couldn't resist buying this cute duck paper.  I paired it with a few scraps that were on the table to make this anniversary card.  The light blue pieces were recycled from packaging material.  I knew they'd eventually come in handy.   I used the new CTMH paper piercing guide for the designs.    The sentiment is also CTMH.

These ducks will be swimming into the following challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge #91 - Anything Goes
Card Makin Mamas Challenge #85 - Earth Friendly
Simply Create Too Challenge #60 - Stack em Up (at least 2 layers)
Sister Act Card Challenge #54 - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts Challenge #34 - Anything Goes
Divas by Design Challenge - Let's go to the Movies  -  This card was inspired by the movie "On Golden Pond".  I remembered them listening to the call of the loons on the pond, and saying that loons mated for life.  I figured the duck paper was perfect for an anniversary card.  Then I googled loons and whether or not they mated for life.  They actually don't.  So inside the card I put ....  Loons don't really mate for life.... mating for life makes you looney.
