Pixies Snippets Playground

Tuesday already and I am only just posting this card for the Challenge over at Pixies Snippets Playground. Last week I was in Cornwall, where hubby and our son were spending the week fishing. Unfortunately we had rain everyday, sometimes only a shower, but it still rained daily, not so good when you have a 14 month old child with you as well. But still it was a break and of course we had gorgeous Cornish pasties too. Anyway enough of that, inspired by the fact that it is our 36th Wedding Anniversary today, while looking through the scraps box I came across this gorgeous photo. I printed it a couple of months ago for another project, but it was a little larger that I needed, so rather than throw it away it made it to the box. Along with some gold linen card where there was just enough to matt the image and cut out the Happy Anniversary. I found some small bits of white that had not quite made it to the bin and with one of my Crealies flower dies I cut the smallest flower  three times and distressed the edges with some spiced marmalade and popped some gems into the middle after adding then to the card. The only thing that did not come out of the scrap box was the card base itself which is a 5x5 size.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Happy Anniversary! Hope it is a wonderful one.
Your card is so lovely. I really like the image and the gold you used for the mat and the sentiment looks fabulous.

Have been ill since our Alaska cruise...some horrid flu/cold virus. Off to have a wee catch up on your blog!
