Happy Anniversary

I had today off ....... I quickly did the dusting, vacuuming, mopped the floor, and a few loads of laundry. I was done by around 7:30 am. I thought great I can with paper all day RIGHT!!!
I received 2 disrupting phone calls, from so called adults and was too stressed to think when I sat back down. So now I'm burning the midnight oil. At least it's quite.
I made this card for a challenge at Joan's Garden.
Here are the requirements;
1. Use paper that has a stripe (if you don't have one, you can make one) (Brown and Ivory Stripe)
2. Use a button or some kind of embellishment (Green buttons anchoring the saying)
3. Use a Heart (Spellbinders Nested Hearts)
4. Use a bow (I hope my Man bow counts. LOL)

I've covered everything I think. The corner piece is from Webster's Papers. The base, heart ans saying are all Gina K Designs Green Apple. The printed dp is from October Afternoons Thrift Shop collection. Can you read the line just above the striped paper? My saying on the heart is from a JustRite set called Romantic Sentiments and the one on the tag is from a Gina K set by Rupa called With This Ring. My bow is made from netting and jute. I think this can pass as a guy card?
This will be for my hubby in August when our anniversary rolls around.
That's it for now 2 hours past bedtime.
