Hearts For You

Good Afternoon guys, 

Hope you are all keeping dry, so far we have had a bit of rain but nothing like what was forecasted. 

Today I am sharing for you a wedding anniversary card (I have plenty to share with you as July is my busiest month for anniversary cards) 

This card is one that I made for my husband’s cousin and his wife, the celebrated 14 years of marriage the other day. 

I first seen this idea on Pinterest, unfortunately it has been pinned that many times I am having problems getting back to the original idea. 

The card base is a A5 card base and is matted with black and white card, the top layer was a plain white card section that I embossed using one of Sue Wilson A4 embossing folders. 

I cut the hearts and the butterflies out with my Cricut machine. I used my promarker pens (lobster Pink, Yellow, and Grass) to colour in the die cut pieces, I went for vibrant colours so they stood out from the black. I embossed the top layer of each heart and matted a contrast butterfly to each piece. It was finished of with a sentiment of "Happy Anniversary"

Really simple for me, normally I love to have a coloured image in and flowers all over, but I think it actually looks pretty cool, and I am thinking some Christmas cards like this would look lovely. Watch this space - I will be having a play later and see what I can come up with. 

The challenges that I am entering this into are:

Crafty Catz #240 - Hot Summer/ or Hot Colours -  25/07
Sister Act Card Challenge #66 - Anything Goes - 25/07

Crafty Girls Challenge - #22 - Anything Goes - 24/07

I hope you like it and I will be back soon to share some more ideas with you.
