Sentimental Sundays.....Wedding/Anniversary

Hi Susan here......

Today being Sunday is time again for a challenge over at Sentimental Sundays.
The theme of the challenge this week is 'Wedding/Anniversary'. Now I have to admit I don't make a lot of this type of card, except when I have to, so it was a challenge for me!
You can get the full details of the challenge and our sponsors plus some fabulous inspiration from the design team by calling across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card.....

I chose my favourite colours for this one, browns and pinks. I love those colours together and always think they look romantic, soft and lovely.
My backing paper was from my stash, I don't know where it was from originally but I loved the colours.
I used a Multi-Shaper allDeco punch for the side border. The ribbon and pearls as usual are from our local market. The cute little butterflies are a punch, I used white card then coloured them with inks, glitter and pearls. The two hearts are made from card using a cuttlebug die. I coloured them with inks then coated one in crackle glaze and the other in stickles.

This beautiful sentiment made for me by Ann Vento is available from Raindrop Echo Designs, the frame is available from the same place, I coloured the frame on the computer. I mat and layered the frame onto a doily that was made using an embossing die.

This is a close up of my flowers, the small roses and buds are from Hobby Craft, the larger rose, was made using a die and then inking and shaping. Inspiration for this came from a rose bush I have in my garden. The leaves are made from white card and a deckle pair of scissors, some inks and a ball tool.

Thank you so much for looking and for all your wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
