Keeping to the Wedding Anniversary theme ...From and oldie to a newbie!

Morning all and thank you for visiting
Wedding Anniversary was lovely, had a nice meal out reminiscing about our day etc. OH loved the card which for a non-card enthusiast was a real compliment. Actually he's my biggest customer needing cards for work colleagues.

Mrs Duck - very spooky re Mr D! and thank you for letting me know re email. I don't go into my account very often. Going there now
Janice - yes, St Albans was where we got married and the latitude, longitude co-ordinates are for St Albans
GailT - I agree, I am very proud of our achievement, even though we've had our moments!

Today's card was made for a friend that needed one for a couple celebrating their first (paper) anniversary and are Dutch. Apparently their theme was pale yellow too

Becca Feakin Filigree Delight die 
Petal pairs punches
Botanical Swirls die for foliage
Pages from an old dictionary


  1. Beautiful card Karen, love it, especially how you have used paper/books for the background, it really stands out and with that touch of Yellow, perfect.

    Love & hugs

  4. Never thought of die cutting a book page, but it is very effective, especially for a paper anniversary.

  5. This card is gorgeous and love the colours together and loving the Becca Feeken die - I do look at her blog but it is great to see how someone else use her dies and how different they can look xx have an amazing day tomorrow at AP xx GailT xx

  6. Karen, this is beautiful, and such a lot of thought put into it. I love the colours and use of the dictionary page. Enjoy today.

  7. Hi Karen,

    Thank you for your comment on my blog, in answer to your question the splatter was created by two means, first spray inks then water colour paint just flicked on with a paintbrush. best to do this in a container lol! Give it a go, I find it looks better when its not over done, less is more as they say. Don't be put off as this was my fourth attempt the others ended up in the bin lol!

    Love & hugs
