Ooops... Forgot about this one!!

Thursday, 25 June 2009


I can't believe I forgot about this card! It was my mum & dad's 35th wedding anniversary last week.

Here's my card


I've checked and it fits 3 challenges!
Colour Create are looking for pistachio green, aqua and powder pink - that's my 3 main colours!
My Time To Craft's challenge this week is "In the garden" - lots of flowers on my card in the DP and the embellishment.
And One Stop Craft Challenge are looking for numbers on our creations, and as 35 years of marriage is a bit of a milestone, I put some numbers on there!
I didn't use a sketch for it and just came up with the layout myself (which was a challenge in itself!!)


The stamp is another Leanne Ellis lovely from Sugar Nellie - love these babies! Coloured with my old faithful promarkers.
I ran the bits through my cuttlebug using 2 different embossing folders. The flowers are from my local craft shop.

Here's the inside


copied from the front. You can see the different embossing better here as the flower is covering a bit on the front!

I hope you liked it. Thanks for dropping by!

Sheena, this is lovely. The little girl is adorable and I like the shapes and the writing space on the inside of the card. I always love when people take the extra time to make the inside look nice.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out my blog recently, I wanted to let all my followers know that I’m embarking on a new challenge.
