Anniversary #2

Hello again.  Jen explained yesterday that we've found it very difficult to get in crafty mood this last week.  However I forced myself to make something as I have a deadline for the anniversary cards for my friend Janet; this is the second of the three cards she asked for.

The image is from a new Lili of the Valley art pad called True Love.  I thought this was perfect for an anniversary card.

I cut the image using a Spellbinder deckle edge die and inked through with Old Paper Distress Ink.  I then coloured the very edge with Aged Mahogany. I used a 5 x 7 card blank, some cream cardstock and a piece of Grace Taylor paper to make up my matts and layers.  All these were inked with the same combination of colours.

The sentiment at the top is a gold rub on and I tied some matching ribbon across before adding the panel to the card blank.

The 'just for you' sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley, cut with a 1.5" scalloped circle punch and inked again.  I added it to the bottom using a foam pad.

All I need to do now is add a matching '30' to the bottom right.  Hope you like it.
