Today is a VERY SPECIAL Sunday to me. Not only because it’s time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge, with a very free freebie and fantastic DT creations ;), but also because…
…today, it's my (or ours shall I say!) First Wedding Anniversary and I am getting Properly Sentimental again ;-))).
This is us, exactly 365 days ago (I can't believe how quickly it's gone...):
The theme this week is “For men”. What better way to celebrate this week's theme than to share with you the anniversary card I made for my wonderful Hubby, who BTW is my BF (Bestest Friend) and the BHiEW (Bestest Hubby in the Entire World)!
Having made a few masculine cards recently I really wanted to “break the trend” a bit and decided to use some.... flower accents ;). My hubby loves flowers, and they love him back! Probably because he remembers to water them lol! ;) So I wanted to make a statement today – “It’s OK to say it with flowers!” ;-)))).
Obviously I still wanted the card to look quite masculine so I kept the toned colour palette and stayed with browns, white and grey. My main paper, believe it or not, is a spare scrap of wall paper lol (that’s what I call crafty recycling, double lol ;p ). Then I used some white cardstock and run it through the Forest Branches CB embossing folder, added a paper doily, my cute scrapbook like letters and a few machine stitches later, the card was ready.
Ah, I forgot. I also reused the ribbon from a luscious box of choccies we received recently…. Yummy! The choccies I mean, not the ribbon ;).
The fabulous sentiment I used is of course by Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps.
Make sure to check out the other DT girls’ fab creations, join us for this week’s challenge and... have a lovely Sunday! I'm off to focus all my attention today on my gorgeous spouse! ;)
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
