35th Wedding Anniversary




This year we celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary, my hubby is terrible at remembering dates, when he was managing a Nursing Home the local florist used to phone and remind him of our wedding anniversary, since then it's been downhill I'm afraid,dates just aren't his thing. I'll give this to one of the boys to give to him in case he forgets a card.

Coral is the theme for this anniversary so I tried to achieve that hue by mixing orange and pink shades of Promarkes and Flexmarkers. I didn't add a greeting so that I can use the card for something else should he remember.

  2. Wow Meg - this really is lovely! I adore that stamp - if it's by Woodware I've been ooking at it for a while and it's lovely to see it actually coloured. LOVE the embossing as well - one of my fave folders! Love your strategy about getting the card back as well :)

    Hugs

  16. What a cute idea! Love the card. This looks like a stamp I'd look at and say...how can I possibly use that? and then pack it in the back of the drawer. You used it and made it lovely! Thanks for sharing with Unicorn Challenges. Barbara DT

  23. So you made your own card to pass on to the boys so they can give it to hubby, so he can give it to you? In that case you're sure of getting a card:) I'm no good with dates either, it's a very un-feminine trait, I know.... I really like the design of the image and your color choices, beautiful!
