Happy anniversary ..

Today's challenge at Papertake Weekly is 'die-ing for a punch' and I've managed to use punched butterflies, leaves, a tiny tag with the date of our anniversary on and punched-out corners, then die-cut ovals on this 42nd wedding anniversary card for my husband  for tomorrow  24th July (he doesn't read my blog so won't see it)   For a change I haven't used an image and used flowers instead.  I embossed white paper andI inked all edges with walnut stain and added bridal white satin ribbon, Deborah fine cluny lace and 8mm self adhesive ivory pearl hearts.  I added a tiny silver heart with flower charm and a pearl button tied with natural button twine to finish the card.  

My flower arrangement includes ivory and cream 30mm, 20mm, 10mm roses and hip rosebuds

Flowers, ribbons, lace, pearls, button, twine, charm are all from

I hope you will have time to pop over to Papertake Weekly and be inspired by the wonderful projects by the design team - there is a lovely prize for you to win!

I'm entering this card into A Creative Romance - no designer papers - see you soon, Mary x
