Navy and Cream Anniversary

Hi everybody.  I have an anniversary card to show you today, actually the last family anniversary until April.  I decided to use the colours of the latest Color Hues Challenge which appealed to me as something a bit different when making an anniversary card.

I started with the topper using some cream pearlised card and decided to use some lines scored down the middle of the square shape, about 3 1/4" square, and decided on the negative, going into the card.  I then die cut a heart from the centre and backed it with a piece of the navy to frame.  I used this heart and die cut it one size smaller.  I then backed this with a piece of foam and placed it in the centre and added three little self drawn hearts using a dark blue Sakura Starlight gel pen for a bit of sparkle and also ran the pen down the lines on the cream heart, and finished with a sentiment using Versafine Majestic Blue ink below the topper on the 6" square white base card.

Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope you'll visit again soon.

What a wonderful anniversary card, Pat! Firstly, I think it's great that you send anniversary cards to your family (I assume). The color combination is perfect for the CAS design with the extra touches of shimmer. Thank you for playing with us at the Alphabet Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
