25th Anniversary

Here's a card I have made for a friend's
25th Wedding Anniversary.
I have followed a lovely sketch over at
Sketch Saturday,
just tipped it on it's side.
Pop over there and have a look at the great DT work,
and don't miss the chance to win some fab goodies from
this week's sponsor,
Nikki Fairbairn at
Bunny Zoe's Crafts

I thought there was something missing from this card,
so after the photo I ended up adding
some sticky pearls to the top right.
The stamps are coloured with Promarkers -
but without a blending pen for them
it's difficult to get the shading right.
I am also not convinced about the distressing on the white card.
I have used Tim Holtz Distress Ink,
but I haven't got the hang of the technique yet.
Moan, moan, moan... lol**

Recipe:
Stamps - Whiff Of Joy
Design Paper - K & Co, Classic
Blooms were punched from the paper
and I added some stickles glitter to them.
Pearl brad and heart charm from the Hobby House.
