PanPastels - Wedded Bliss

This week at PanPastel UK the theme is Wedded Bliss and I chose to do an anniversary card.


Quite simply made by using a white card that already had embossed flowers at the bottom, I gently rubbed some PanPastels over starting with magenta and white and added some brown to the edges to get that vintage look. I used one of my favourite Tim Holtz flourish stamps with embossing ink and gently dabbed magenta shade over.


The sentiment was computer generated.

There is a prize for the winner each week sponsored by Your Creativity Store, so pop over to the challenge blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the very talented DT.

Happy Sunday.

I'm so happy that my new computer works and I'm able to visit all my friends in blogland again. You've been very busy and creative during the last time. Much to see :)

It's a beautiful card, perfect for a wedding anniversary. Love the idea sticking the swirl around the couple.

Hi Brenda,

What a pretty anniversary card! I enjoyed reading the technique you used on this "simple" card. It may be simple to you but not in my book. It looks lovely!

Thanks for visiting my post about the horses. I'm so happy to have seen them again. Hopefully they'll do well through the winter!

Hugs,
Kay
