Happy Anniversary..

Hi folks,

4 days to go and the clocks ticking to Christmas, you will be pleased to know the world didn't end at 11am this morning and the Mayans are now celebrating their first official April Fools Day!! (apologies to any Mayans reading this , we all have our off days!!)

Happy Anniversary to my friends Jenny and Ray who celebrated their 22nd year together this month. Here's a card dedicated to them, I wish them many more years of happiness together xx

There is nothing more romantic then a December wedding in my view and if I ever do it again then that's my month of choice , and lets face it you can't rely on sunshine in June or July in Britain any more, the last wedding I went to was in June and it rained most of the day!! so you might as well have it in the winter at least you have a rough idea what to expect weather wise!!
This is a really simple card style to make if you have the right dies. Spellbinders have a fabulous range and I have used labels 20 cut from white Centura Pearl card stock which has also been run through a embossing folder for the base and Persain motifs for the star on which the flowers and foliage are mounted. The flower and leaves can be recreated using a Kreaxion's flower die set they were coloured with a Tim Holt's ink pad 'Worn Lipstick' Pink and edged with Silver stickles glitter glue

The butterflies were cut from a Cheery lynn die in Silver Holographic card and then doubled up to give dimension

All this has been mounted onto a doily cut in 2 halves and a white scalloped base card . Decorate the corners with a pink dew drop and add a 'Happy Anniversary' peel off sticker in the top corner  and there is your finished Anniversary card xx
