Happy Anniversary

Hi my wonderful blogland friends.  How are your doing this week?  This is a scheduled post, but I am pleased to say that my migraines are getting less and less each day.  Thank you for all your great comments and support.

We are here for another challenge at Polka Doodles for week 19! Only another 7 weeks and we will be half through the year!

Our theme this week is Anniversaries and I decided to go with a CAS style card, well nearly anyways.

Here is my little bit of inspiration for you.

Wouldn't this also make a wonderful Wedding card.  The little heart embellishment was a candy win from last year, when I first started my blog.

The papers are from the the All Around and Everywhere CD, such a fun CD, full off fabulous papers and sentiments and tons of back to nature elements.

The sentiment is from the Cherryblossom Lane CD and I merged this with the backing paper.

I couldn't resist adding a little bit of tulle, it was just too CAS for me :-)  All the edges of all the layers were inked.

For the inside, as the norm, I used the same papers and finished it off with some little flourishes.

I just love these classy looking papers.

Don't forget you have just over a week to enter, the challenge closes on the 19 May (12pm UK time).  Please remember, if you take part in the challenge, and to be eligible for prizes, you can only enter a total of 10 challenges including Polka Doodles.
