A bit of a cheat ...

It will be our 20th wedding anniversary on Wednesday and we're celebrating by going to the Hilton at Maidstone (we've booked the suite). Time is running out and I hadn't yet made a card for John (isn't it typical that we tend to leave the 'important' ones till the last minute - well, I tend to, anyway).

I remembered a card I made a couple of years ago that I've never used and never sold. I can remember when I made it thinking it would be a good anniversary card to give to John, but our anniversary had just been and gone at the time, so I just put it in the box. I came across it earlier this afternoon and thought I would use the front of the card to mount on to an A5 stardream card with added sentiments. So, there you are - I've cheated and recycled one of my own cards!

You can see the original card here.

The gold embossing on the butterfly doesn't really show up here, but it did on the original version:

I'm entering this into a couple of 'recycling' challenges:
