Here is a card I have made for my Sister-in-law and her husband for their Anniversary.
I have recently bought several MCS CD roms and whilst browsing through the content of Quintessential Country Garden I cam upon this wonderful sentiment.
This seemed so perfect for an anniversary card, that I just had to use it for my Sister-in-law and her husband.
I chose a lovely delicate cream paper as my main backing it has musical staves printed on it in a darker cream and lovely apricot and pink flowers.
I added a strip of paper that has delicate pink rose garlands on it at the bottom of the card and added some fabric scraps which were from a wonderful sample book that had been given me by a work colleagues mother, simply because she felt I could use the samples in my card making. There are pages of fabrics approximately A3 in size all gorgeous, satins, silks and organzas. As well as hundreds of tiny samples which I have soaked in hot water to remove the glue and use behind images on my cards as I have done here.
The image is a bride and groom from the Ooh La La creations CD Yesterday's Memories and I used the Tattered Lace die I bought yesterday to cut the frame. I cut a heart from blue script paper and put this behind the main image.
I also embossed a piece of the script paper and cut a corner for the front of the card.
The finishing touches were the pretty roses from The Hobby House a piece of vintage seam binding tied in a bow, a little string of pearls and 2 pearl pins, as it will be their pearl wedding anniversary
Inside the card I added a doily which I had coloured using a gold marker pen and I added two images from the MCS CD which had been aged using Momento Cocoa ink.
