Happy Anniversary

Hope you are all well.  Not going to waffle on as I will be leaving for work in a few minutes.  Just wanted to share a card that I made a little while ago for my sister to give her husband.


Decided not to use any patterened paper as, at the time, I really couldn't find anything I wanted to use.  I cut out a heart shape from some foiled acetate that I had.  This was then mounted onto some blue card.  The flowers were punched using one of my lovely flower punches.  I used very light pearlescent blue paper for this.  I added pearls to each of the flower centres.  The butterfly is made by my Mum from parchment.  I did the sentiments on the computer and added some ribbon and bows.  I am afraid the picture is a bit dark but so difficult to get good photos at the moment.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
