Anything Goes- Anniversaries!

Hi everyone! Well, if you're in the UK I hope you've been enjoying our gorgeous weather! Can I just say hello to all my recent new followers! Hellooooooo! 

Anyway, today's post is another challenge over at Anything Goes and today's challenge is "Anniversaries"! This is a card I have made to celebrate my anniversary which isn't actually until August. We'll be married 7 years this year- time flies!! I'm really pleased with how this has turned out, I know hubby will love it, he's a bit soppy like that!!


I used the cutest Lili of the Valley stamp to make this called Times to Treasure. I coloured with copics, added shading and grass done with Lyra pencils. These beautiful papers are called Love Me by MME purchased at The Craft Den. I've added some stitching around them with my sewing machine. The sentiment is MFT from Dream Big A La Mode stamp set. The banner is made using a Die-namics banner die and set with eyelets, I love how it echoes the banners on the background paper. The heart with paper roses was recycled off an old card I had.

I'd like to enter this into:
Lili of the Valley- anything goes
Simply Create Too- wedding or love
Moving Along With The Times- celebration, no birthday
Paperplay- Summer loving 
Crafty Catz- Card for a man
Make It Monday- anything goes

A close up! She is a bit like me as I have a big floppy hat I like to wear in the sun!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (LOTV, MFT); Copics; Lyra pencils; Papers (MME); Assorted cardstock; Sewing machine; Nesties; Banner Die-namics (MFT); Ribbon (recycled); Heart & flowers (recycled)
