Sweet Anniversary

Friends of ours are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this weekend (well, the surprise party is this weekend, anyway).  I had a fun time creating the "papers" for this one for PTI's Make it Monday challenge this week.  It makes me wonder why I don't do it more often.  You can see a better shot of the patterns and a description of each at the end of the post.
 Here is the sentiment on the inside:
 Here are the "papers" without anything covering them up:
The largest panel was created by stamping 3 different medallions from "Mehndi Medallions" in aqua mist, sweet blush and new leaf, then I stamped a French script over top with grout gray ink.  The flower panel was made with the flowers and leaves from "The Sweet Life" using sweet blush, berry sorbet and new leaf.  I then stamped the same script in grout gray.  The little banner was stamped with "Distressed Stripes" in aqua mist.
