Anniversary Card




I made this card with one of the frames from the storybook, 7 with the card frame ON, and lined the inside with acetate. I dotted gems along a few of the swirls. The flower was cut on silhouette (george cartridge) and I backed it with a scrap of real crunchy lace. A pretty brad (papermania) in the centre and I was done. The inside sentiment is Happy Wedding Anniversary. I really like these frame cards, and haven't used them enough. The card is 5" square, and the flower was cut at 3", first in black, then in hot pink. The white flower in the centre is cut from a strip of felt fusion.
I won't bore you with the heating saga, except to say I am still not toasty warm, and even as I write there is much banging and clattering in the garage where the new boiler is being installed today. The man hasn't done the sharp intake of breath once today, I think he is leaving that for us to do when we get the bill. Hey ho.........it's only money she sobbed.
