Busy Week Anniversary Traditional/Fun

This card was inspired by my niece Samantha of Hooliewood Creations, who has been a great inspiration and support to me this summer.  For this I must say a big heart felt "Thank You" to her.  I challenged myself to do two anniversay cards, one more traditional and the other a fun card.  Worked on my finishing of cards as well.  Paying attention to the inside of the card as well as the outside.

This traditional layout started by embossing with distress ink the center panel. It was then mounted on pink card stock and edged with embossed strips. A simple sentiment which was raised surrounded by Perfect Pearls in Watermelon. Two butterflies and the ribbon and simply three small flowers on the bottom edge to finish it off.

On the inside I edged the card with some of the pink card stock and then added an embossed edge to finish the inside.

I lined the envelope with the same pink to complete the presentation of this set.
Remember wee things are what matter.

My second anniversay card was to have some fun factor.

The card started with and embossed piece of stock which was then coloured with antique linen ink and mounted on a poka dot stock from Precious Pink.  the image of the hedge hogs was coloured with copic markers and then cut out and mounted on a second embossed piece which had the edge of the scallop treated with the antique linen as well.  Opal which Perfect Pearls were placed in the jucture of each scallop.  The hedge hogs were then mounted with pop dots along with the small heart above them.  boutques of ivory flowers were placed at opposite corners and a bow mounted on the edge of the scallop piece.  A finer lace was placed across the bottom and everything was finished off with four small red glitter hearts which were demensional.
This care has a bit of traditional flavour with the hedgehogs for fun. Quite obviously these two are not prickly about their love.

The inside is done very simply, the sentiment was mounted on another piece of poka dot paper and the this was mounted onto the base which was decorated with the same lace as the front.

Enjoy yourselves and keep scrap'n.
And remember it is true "Wee things are what matter".
