Anniversary Card


Firstly, can I just say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who answered my plea for advice on score boards...you girls are amazing and brilliant for offering such invaluable detail regarding the best one to buy...I'm pleased to announce that I'm now the proud owner of a Hougie Board...I got a really good deal on a Ebay auction and the board included a booklet with lots of ideas and suggestions for things to make...thanks girls for all your help and advice...it really is very much appreciated!

Today's card is a 25th Wedding Anniversary Card that a friend asked me to make for her...I decided to be brave and not use a cutesie image and I'm kinda pleased with the end result! The card is really sparkly IRL as I got a bit carried away with the stickles lol! It was also a pig to photograph coz the mirri card kept catching the light and I didn't dare use the flash!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges...
Bearly-Mine...Bring on the Bling
Ooh La La Creations...No Backing Papers
Challenge Up Your Life...No Patterned Paper
Marks Finest Papers...Emboss It!

Card Stock : White Hammered Card Stock from The Papermill, Mirri Card from my Stash!
Embellishments : Ribbons, Gems, White Flower & White Roses & Stickles from my Craft Stash
Tools : Silver Hearts cut on Cricut Expression, Circular Nestabilities, Cuttlebug 'Swirl' Embossing Folder, X-Cut Flower Punch
Sentiments : Created on the Computer

Hi Donna - this is such a lovely card. How do you come up with your designs? I love the embossing - especially on the silver foiled hearts. I love the stickles - it always makes it nice and sparkly and you can never have too much. Glad you have a new score board - I love mine (MS). I hope your weekend is great! ;D
