A Winter Anniversary

Hello there...

Today it's my wedding anniversary and I'm sharing the card I made for my hubby


Both the sentient stamp and the bird stamp were from Hobbycraft and they only cost £1 each ... The bird stamp doesn't always give full coverage but I love it, so after stamping it I use a marker pen to fill in any missing bits and then stamp over it again... Easy with the Misti


I did some ink blending around the little birds and then stamped the umbrella onto a scrap of CS - cut around it and just drew a line for the handle - After cutting out the rectangle shape, masking off the birds, I then added embossing paste through a stencil and doused it in glitter


The first challenge of the year at AAA Cards is to use glitter 


..So I'm entering my card there and hoping it will be CAS enough

I'll be back tomorrow ... Have a great day

~ Ros ~

So cute! The scripty sentiment is really fun and I think the inking was the perfect little extra to make the birds pop. Happy anniversary!
