Anniversary Card


I made this card for my Auntie to give to her son (my cousin obviously lol) & his wife on their 24th wedding anniversary. I really struggled with this one, it took me ages to decide on an image, I trawled the 100s of digi sites but couldn't find anything suitable for them so I used my old faithful Penny Black stamp (watercoloured with Twinkling H20s) :-) The backing paper is from Designs by Krista & I used a Martha Stewart punched border. I made the rose from cutting a v shape out of several punched flowers (sorry I can't find the instructions now) & added punched leaves. Finishing the card off with a greeting, ribbon & charm.

I'm entering this card for 4 challenges:
Just Us Girls - Sketch
Crafty Creations - Make Your Own Flowers
Creative Inspirations - Charms
Fab 'n' Funky - Weddings or Significant Wedding Anniversary (this is 24th lol, I'm hoping they'll let it count)
