How Long!?


My brother & sister in law have been married for 35 years and this is the card I made for their anniversary. It's very simple and probably too 'cute' for them but after all these years it must be the thought that counts!

I've used a fab die cut image from LOTV and tried to pick up the pinky red tones with Pink Petticoat leaf print paper, dark pink 'Gemstones' backing card from Co-ordinations, a few pearls and ribbon from my stash and to keep the love theme going I included a doily heart. The sentiment is a freebie download from Nettie's blog - Thank you Annette! The little bow isn't quite as crooked as it appears on the photo but it did look a bit sad despite my best efforts with my bowmaker.

I'm going to search out a few challenges for it but in the meantime thank you for looking.
