I've not been in the right frame of mind for making cards for a while but it was my daughter and son-in-law's wedding anniversary recently and I thought I really should make the effort, but I did leave it rather late and ended up doing this in a hurry to get it in the post. Knowing Deborah liked Me to You bears, or Tatty Teddy as they were originally called and how I still think of them, I took the easy option of finding a coloured image on the internet to use as a topper rather than colouring one in myself.
The paper is from Pink Petticoat and I tried to match the blue to the colour of the teddy's nose, it wasn't quite right and I think the ribbon is a closer match. I was lucky enough to have a couple of flowers that were a pretty good match to the bow on the champagne bottle and the blue gem flower in the middle is something I've had in my stash for years!
I'm not sure now that the trellis punch was the right one to use on the orange card, it just doesn't say "romance" does it! And I'm not even sure if I like the colour combo now! I cheated with the sentiment too, rather than print one on the computer I used a peel-off which I coloured with a blue permanent pen, same for the three little flowers which I used as there was quite a lot of space to fill up! I think I should have put a bit of sparkle on the champagne glasses too!
I think it's fair to say I'm not 100% happy with this effort, which you've probably gathered by now!
I've just missed my great niece's 3rd birthday and sent a belated bought one (hangs head in shame!) so I really must get my botty in gear as I have quite a few birthdays coming up including three other great nieces/nephew.
