Pearl anniversary


This is an 8 x 8 commissioned 30th (pearl) anniversary card for a friend to give to her husband.

I chose the  My Paper Stash background paper because it has a bit of a musical theme, which is appropriate for the recipient (hope he will forgive  and like the pink - not too 'in your face' pink - lol!).

All the sentiment pieces are gold foiled, although difficult to see here, so are the numerals and the glittered hearts. I added 30 pale pink pearls - one for every year of a Pearl anniversary.

On the right hand side at the top I stamped over the background paper Stampington forget me not stamp inked with memento rich cocoa, covering the 'forget me not' words with the 'To my husband' gold foiled sentiment. I used a spectrum noir pencil to lightly shade around parts of the heart.

CHNC challenge 391


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 391 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'use some washi tape'.

I used a striped offcut paper for the background with lots of merry Christmas washi tape and also washi with reindeer. The lovely glittered bauble was upcycled from a card received, as was the glittery Merry Christmas
