Hello! Hello! It's Tuesday so that can only mean one thing- it's time for another Anything Goes Challenge! The theme this fortnight is "Stitching"- real or faux. As ever, the DT have really outdone themselves again with gorgeous samples so pop over and check them out.
My card this week is for a friend's 10th wedding anniversary. I don't normally do anniversary cards for friends but as this is a special year, I really wanted to do something special.
I love this cute image, so perfect for anniversary and valentine cards. I coloured with a mixture of copics and watercolour pencils- basically dipping in and out of mediums pretty much willy nilly! I added a generous amount of Crystal Stickles around the image. I used my new nesties to matt and layer the image with some contrasting shapes. These totally gorgeous papers are Honey Cake by MME which I bought at The Craft Den- Lynne has papers at a fabbie price!
The "10" was cut out using my new Die-namic By The Numbers set. The "th anniversary" are stamped using the matching MFT stamp set. The flowers are made using the rolled flower die from MFT and the swirls are a Boss Kut die.
As you can see I stitched around the edge using pink thread. I would've done more stitching but my sewing machine seems to have totally lost it so I was somewhat restricted!!! :0)
I'd like to enter this into:
Pollycraft- anything goes
Sweet Stampin Challenges- anything goes

Close up!! The cute little heart was a leftover piece from using the Doohickey heart border edge die.
