This is a very clean and simple anniversary card, made using the new Fred She Said Hearts & Roses digi set. You'll see that I have removed the wording "I love you" from the image and added my own wording. It's the first time I've ever tried this and really, it couldn't be easier! I've used the pre-coloured digi but there is also a set for your own colours available. I've printed out, cut out and layered 2 further rose sprays onto the heart. The heart was put through my Swiss Dot embossing folder and then inked with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
The sketch is from this week's Midnight Madness. The DP is Bearly Mine, one from the Simply Dots download and one from the Designer Extreme I CD. Donna at Bearly Mine has a new challenge blog and I'm hoping she'll accept this as an entry to the recipe challenge this week: 3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 image. The image IS the flowers, though, so fingers crossed lol! I was lucky enough to win the CD in a recent challenge, thanks Donna!
I've gold embossed an Elusive Images swirl in the corner of each DP and added some pearls, if you click on the picutre you can see them better... There still seems quite a bit of open space, don't know if I will tinker about with this card a bit more...
