Our First Wedding Anniversary.

Wow - that year has flown! Today is our first Wedding Anniversary. So today's card is one I made for my Husband (still weird saying that!) to celebrate. First Wedding gifts are traditionally paper so that's an easy one for any crafter... Just give us a paper pad and we are happy as larry. (Who was Larry??) This is actually Morris and Mildred or is this the future for us... Ben would have to shrink from his 6ft5 and would have to put on a little weight!!

The card is made with a background from Doodlebug Sweethearts paper. I coloured and cut around Morris and Mildred and glued them on to the card. I used a fine black liner pen and drew the broken line around the paper panel. I die cut a little heart using Spellbinders nestibilities die and added the wooded button with some red twine. I attached a strip of pale blue lace from Papermania and added the extra words and numbers with Doodlebug letters. Finally I added some pearl hearts from Hobbycraft.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - usual
Morris' suit - Warm Greys
hair - Cool Greys
Dress - Pink Mittens,
Flowers and waist coat - Carmine, Vermillion & Poppy.
Leaf green and Lush green leaves
Powder blue eyes.

Ben got me these lovely flowers which are a bouquet full of different Peonies. They are my favourite and we had Peonies for our wedding flowers.

So that's all for me now so I will be back soon with some inspiration from All Dressed up.
Have a great day,
Liz (:(|)x
