Happy Anniversary

It's our neighbours' 25th Wedding Anniversary this week.  They are really lovely people and I have made this card for them.

I glued some glitter on to a die-cut heart and the numbers are from American Crafts.  Edge stamps are by Autumn leaves.  I sprayed some white card with pearl glimmer mist and used this for the Martha Stewart heart punched strip and for the background for the sentiment (which is Stampington).
The pearly bling is by Prima and I bought the charm in a local shop.
The black ribbon is from Paper Mill.
It's a bit simple, but it looks better in real life.
Off to make an envelope now! X

Time for a challenge -Play Date Cafe Challenge 39

Just re-posting this as I had a little technical glitch and had to delete my original post.  Thank you to everybody who has been kind enough to leave me a comment on my card so far.
The Play Date Cafe colours this week were chosen by Julie, and I love this neutral palette.

I made this card using a quote by Lewis Carroll:
Stamps are by Cavallini, Paperartsy and Crafty Individuals, ink is Vintage Sepia and the flowers are by Prima.
Thank you so much for looking X

Love those Paperartsy Stamps

I needed to make a Thank You card this week and I love these Paperartsy stamps so much that I went straight for them.
After using distress ink on the background I masked off all the edges of the card, then stamped those beautiful flower head stamps in the unmasked area.  I removed the masks and stamped the scroll round the edge, then just drew a pencil line around the middle section.
 The last step was to add my sentiment using my Stampington sentiment stamps.
This method was so quick and simple and I do like the finished card so I'll be using my masking tape again.

Thanks for looking X
