Happy Anniversary

Hi Folks
Now I bet I have caught a few of you by surprise with my very early morning post.  I managed to find enough time last night to schedule this post before I went to bed.  Now that doesn't happen often lol.

Today I wanted to share an anniversary card with you that I made.

I used a free cutting file from http://www.birdscards.com/ for the white layer.  This is a great site and Bird has lots of cutting files and images to download for free.  I scanned the cutting file image into my Brother Scan and Cut and then got it to cut it out.  It worked perfectly and an excellent cut.  Once cut I mounted it onto pink coredinations cardstock.  For the centre I simply cut a square, rounded the corner and added the wording using a peel off.  For embellishments I added a bow, pearls and some flowers.  I also went round the edge of the cut panel with stickles.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I love reading all your comments.
