Anniversary Card

The second of the two images I won is perfect for an anniversary card, and a friend is celebrating her first anniversary this summer, so it was ideal.

Again, it's an image by Lauretta at I Did it Creations and it's coloured with Promarkers. I've used my nesties and paper from my stash. Those gorgeous flowers were something I fell in love with. I popped into my local Hobbycraft yesterday to buy some lace, and spotted a roll of those. The colours are so gorgeous and despite the price (it was a lot more expensive than the other lace) I had to have some. And of course, it can be snipped apart into individual flowers.

I'm entering it for the following challenges.

I Did it Creations which requires that we're 'creative',
Create 4 Fun which is a sketch challenge,
Colour Create, and
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which requires a wedding/ anniversary card.

Hi Jo, sorry about my mix up there... but they are intended for you as well!! Yes, I've been so busy lately, my OH always grumbling at me for staying so much on my puter and cardmaking ... in fact I've had them for quite a few days and didn't have time to post them until now! Please pick them up and pass on xxx

Lovely card. The colors are some of my favorites. You made a good buy on the lovely flowers. Sometimes you just have to pay a bit more. They are worth every penny.
