Anniversary Card For My Hubby

Firstly I hope all you mum's in the UK have had a wonderful Mother's Day. I have had two lots of flowers along with 2 lots of chocolates and my biggest surprise a handmade decoupaged card from my SON! I was already to thank him for his wonderful gesture when he announced it was cheaper than a shop one as he could use all my supplies, kids who'd have them lol. I can't wait to see what I get for my birthday tomorrow, I have been looking around my craft room to see what is missing but nothing jumps out as yet.

Now I thought I would show you the Anniversary card I made for my husband for our anniversary yesterday, I often go with a green theme as we were married on St Patrick's Day but this year I went with this fun card instead. I used this great Bugaboo image called 'Stella Tidbits - Braless' because as soon as I got it my husband joking around said 'oh who does that resemble? oh yes your mother' so I thought I would remind him what he would have after another 17 years of marriage!

I cut the bottom edge of my card with 2 of my new Spellbinder Edgeabilites dies and really like the effect, they took a bit of getting right as my Cuttlebug is now old and I always have to juggle the sandwich to get an even pressure.

Supplies:-
A5 Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Craft Creations
Ribbons - Stash
Die's - Spellbinders Edgeabilites
Sentiment - Computer Generated.

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Delightful Challenges - Someone Special
Little Miss Muffet - Easel, Shaped or Step Card

Thanks for stopping by.
