Good afternoon - found time to make 3 cards over the last two days. Its all this snow keeping me inside but I have to admit I love it - everything looks so clean and beautiful.
This card I have made for some very special friends anniversary - 24 years this year so can't wait for their silver wedding in another 12 months.x.
This is a gorgeous wooden stamp from All Night Media - think its quite an old one as I bought it second hand. Think its supposed to be Christmasy  but I've adapted it for an anniversary card.

I made these lovely blooms with a new die from Santa  It's made by Memory Box and is called Pin-wheel Posie. I added the bright green gems to the centre and am thrilled with the effect.
Here is my finished creation. The papers are all from my stash. The lace I won from a lovely lady in Germany on a blog hop. The sentiment is stamped using my Just Right Stamps and cut using my circle Spellbinders. I finished it off adding the gorgeous swirls using pink and green hotfix rhinestones and pearls.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
pennyblackatallsorts/january-love is in the air
papercreatorscrafts/challenge-3-love is all around
craftyribbonschallenge-37- love romance anniversary
