Love is in the air...

I'm going to stop playing with my blog background now... honest!!
I think I have settled on a less 'in your face' dotty design.

Today I am showing you an Anniversary card that a friend asked me to make. 
She thought it might be for a Ruby Anniversary, so I went with colours for that, but left off any specific sentiment.

 I followed this week's sketch over at the Create4fun Challenge, so there are lots of layers on here, mostly stitched in place on my machine.

I love this stamp from Penny Black and it's great to colour.
I used Copics
and a glitter pen on her bow
and dotted on the flowers.

Challenges - 

Create4fun - Sketch
Top Tip Tuesday - Wedding/Anniversary
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sewing
Simon Says - A Stich in Time
Aud Sentiments - At least 2 words on your sentiment.

Supplies - 
Penny Black stamp from J'aime Paris set
Happy Anniversary stamp - Papermania Scrolls & Sentiments.
DP - K & Co Classic
Pearls from Crafty Emma's Store.
Sheer Ribbon.
