Anniversary Card

March 1st sees the first anniversary of my Daughter and Son-in-law, so this card has been made for them. At the same time I've used the colours for this month's colour challenge on the Chocolate Baroque challenge blog. I started with some plain white card and Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard seed, with a blending tool I coloured the background. I used stamps from the Fluttering Hearts and Punky Hearts sets, first over stamping the background with the Harlequin Hearts and True Love stamps. Then I stamp the Heart Flowers with the Bird and Butterfly onto the background and coloured with matching Distress Pens then cut out and added with glue gel. Lastly I stamped the Bird and Heart onto white card and again coloured with matching Distress Pens. I just need to add the sentiment when I find where I put the stamp.

Luckily my daughter does not read my blog so I'm able to post this card on here now.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments are always appreciated.
