Romantically Sweet

I've made this card for my in-laws up an coming Wedding Anniversary, 49 years wow, they are still very happy together and rarely spend time apart. They have asked us to join them for a meal to celebrate.

The image is from a Joanna Sheen cd rom, The Faye Whittaker Collection ", I can highly recommend this cd, the images are beautiful. I printed onto glossy paper at top quality, definitely makes a difference to the look of the card. The background paper is K&Co , ocean sea glass. I've added metal corners, blue lace and poppies from  wild orchid , been waiting for these to come back into stock, lovely aren't they!
Inside I've printed a matching insert, on the cd, a great finishing touch.

Joanna Sheen: so sweet
 paper play : choose a holiday (mines a beach holiday in Summer )

I'm so achy and tried....spent yesterday putting gloss white paint on the wood work,hall, stair, kitchen. The smell is horrid it's given me a headache, but the fact was I've been putting it off and it was a job that definitely needed doing. Must say it looks nice.
Just going to enjoy a bit of crafting today, plus the usual house work  but nothing too taxing.
have a great day. janex

I just love the Faye Whittaker images Jane, got several in the stamps. Your card is really delightful and the poppies you've used to embellish finish it off beautifully.

Have a good weekend.
