Marvin says Happy Anniversary....

Hi Susan here....

Today we are beginning a new challenge at The Stamping Bazaar and the theme is 'ANNIVERSARY'. It can be a wedding anniversary or the anniversary of a birthday or the anniversary of your first meeting your partner/best friend, in fact anything that you think of as an anniversary of something!!
For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from the design team please call across HERE and join in the fun with us....but please remember to use a Stamping Bazaar image.

Now for my card....

I decided to make one of my favourite card shapes again for this one, as an anniversary deserves a special card....

My ribbon and pearls are from our local market. I have used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the insides. My backing papers are from Bearlymine, these papers are amazing, they are two tone, with a beautiful delicate design on them. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima, the leaves are made using a punch. The sentiment and frame designed by Ann Vento are from Raindrop Echo Designs. I changed the colour of the frame on the computer.

One of my absolute favourite images from The Stamping Bazaar - Marvin with Daisies, designed by Marina Neira. I have cut the image out after colouring with Promarkers and raised it with foam pads.

The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, the die cut frame is from Tickled Pink Stamps.
