Happy anniversary...

Hi everyone!  I just thought I would do a quick post to share a card I did a couple of weeks ago.
I had a request for some Anniversary cards.  Not sure what I really wanted to do for the cards, I searched out Pinterest - WOW you can find anything on there.  I must say I spend many hours looking through all the card galleries.  Lots and lots of talent there for sure.

I came away with quite a few ideas.  This is one that I did.  I should of booked marked the person so i could of given her credit.  Will remember that for next time.

So this is what I came up with,


It was a rather quick card to put together.  Card measures
 5 x 5.  DP is from Kaisercraft - Devonshire Collection. Sentiment is from Verve - Small Phrases.
Dies used are Spellbinders - Floral ovals, and oval, MFT - Fishtale Flag stax, Memory Box - tender leaves, Marianne designs - for the leaves at the top and bottom - sorry no name on the package. Martha Stewart border punch. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts in the UK.

Finished off with some pearls, and I used some glossy accents on the leaves to resemble water droplets.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again real soon.

  2. Ooooh, all those pretty dies! I wish they carried more variety at our local papercrafts store. This is so beautiful in all white on the delicate designer paper. I don't dare visit Pinterest unless I've got plenty of time. There's so much to see, and I keep following more and more card boards. I think I'll pin this one right now! I'm so happy to see your card!

  3. Stunning Pauline! I have picked up that die set so many times and put it back cause I know that I'll only use the largest one that you have used on this card. Wish it came as a single. The colors are really striking together. Hugs!

  4. Gorgeous! Love it. I have that die set and I use it a lot but I have not used it like you have before. Love that look and I do believe I will "borrow" your idea.

  5. Oh so pretty! Those flowers are gorgeous! Love how they sweep around the image panel. And what a great idea to bring the sentiment out and across. I love to peruse Pinterest. Unfortunately I look at the food section too much!
