Happy Aqua Anniversary

Evening! :) I'm here to share another card I was asked to make by my boss at work. It was her 1st wedding anniversary at the end of last month, so she was after a special card to give her husband. Here is what I came up with. 

I've used a few papers from Bo Bunny - Gabrielle collection. Only got a few scraps of that yummity left!! Boohooo - but I feel so proud that I've actually tried to use stuff up! I've used a PTI die to cut a mat to lay all of my embellishment on top. I've embossed it using a Sizzix EF and inked the edges.

Hmm.. what else? The sentiment has been pieced together using.. you guessed it.. Harolds ABC's from Lawn Fawn stamped in Soft Suede ink from SU! I've punched a little flag end and adhered it to the card using dimensionals over a few circles I punched from the polka dot paper. I then punched some hearts using an SU! punch from Pool Party cardstock (*heart*), again from SU!, which I've also used to mat my patterned paper before adhering everything to the Naturals Ivory cardbase.

I've used some blue deliciousness from The Ribbon Girl, in the form of some ric rac and crochet lace. Added a few spots of liquid pearls here and there.. and that's about it! :) 

Thank you for stopping by tonight. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my Fabulous Friday - which was my card to the same happy couple! :)
