A Spoonful of Sugar for our wedding anniversary



I sat down this morning to make my husband's wedding anniversary card (I'm confident he won't see it cos he doesn't look at my blog LOL!). I already had the image and papers to hand so was just waiting for a bit of inspiration for the layout, and decided to follow the sketch for this week's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #16.

My image is PB "Squeeze Until I Squeak" watercoloured, cut out and decoupaged onto gold card embossed with the Cuttlebug "Swirls" folder. Papers are by Papermania, gold sticky ribbon and peel offs from my stash.
I'm also being cheeky and entering this one day old card into the Penny Black Challenge #14 which this week is for A Man's Card - No Blue! Very rare that I make a card fulfilling those criteria, not least because my husband is an Everton fan, but this card fulfils it so perfectly I just had to use it ... plus I'm a bit bizzy this weekend so don't want to be making a new card I'm never gonna use :-)
