Daughter's 7th Wedding Anniversary
I made this card for our youngest daughter Louise, and her husband Bruce, for their 7th wedding anniversary last month.
It's a decoupage sheet I bought in a lovely garden centre just off the M6 near Carlisle, when we travelled up to Scotland and stopped for a cup of tea. There was a craft shop there too (bonus!!), and they had some pretty white silk flower stems which I butchered and coloured with copic markers for various projects and which now, sadly, are all gone. I might just have to stop there again when we go up at the end of the month, just in case they may have some more!!
The pyramage and the background paper and sentiment all came on the same sheet, which was very handy, so after the cutting out, I only had to add background card in red and green and colour the flowers and punched leaves with copic markers. I love the sweet cuddly bears, and although the colour combo seemed quite Christmassy at first, I think it grew on me!
Thanks very much for visiting my blog and for any comments you wish to leave: I really appreciate you stopping by.
