Deborah's Anniversary

Deborah & Dave's anniversary and Ann's birthday fall on the same day later this week so I've had to knuckle down and finish their cards.


For Ann I'm sending the Pepper & Friends card I made recently but I thought there was something missing. I put some more card candy in the bottom right hand corner and I cut out a glittery butterfly from the matching paper I had and 3D'd the top butterfly. I think the card looks better for this.



For Deborah and Dave I stamped one of the rabbits from the Candyfloss & Marshmallow set I recently bought and mounted it onto a scalloped circle of Core'dinations Gemstones card. The mat behind is Core'dinations Whitewash in the same colourway, put through the Cuttlebug with the Daisy Pattern folder then sanded. The hearts backing paper is out of a wedding set of 12" x 12" paper I've had for years but never used. I printed the sentiment on the computer, mounted it onto the same Gemstones card and finished it off with a little pink heart button I found in my stash. A bit of card candy in the corners and I'm quite satisfied with it.

I've just realised - pink again! I really must start using other colours, that will be my next challenge to myself but I think it's going to be hard!
