Anniversaries

Good morning everybody

At  Anything Goes  this week we are celebrating Anniversaries.    Of courses there are of lots of anniversaries that can be used this time around and I suspect a lot of people will be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee.   I have decided to use a cut little Sarah Kay image for my card which I only used a short while ago, but I wanted a vintage feel to this card, and they just seemed to be right for it.


My image is coloured with Promarkers.  The colours all come from the beautiful Maja Designs Vintage Summertime papers.  They are so pretty - I just adore them.  I have distressed the edges and wiped distress ink around.  The die is Cheery Lynn - don't you just love the intricacy of them - but all the bits from the dies on the floor are not such fun - good job the vacuum has good suction!  Leaves are cut with Magnolia dies, and the hearts are Whimsy,  I have tied the two hearts together with a piece of lace.  Other embellishments are pearls and flowers from the Hobby House.




I am entering this into the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmarkers - Distress It
Hook on Crafts - All that glitters
Oh La La Creations - Make It Girly
The Cytie Pie Challenge - Die Cuts and punches
Stamp with Fun - Recipe - Lace, Flowers and 3 papers
