Anniversary Card

Afternoon all, a little late with the blog today. Had a few things to do this morning before I was able to come back to the craft room.

This stitched card I have done for my brother and his wife, who's anniversary it will be next month.

I had the swan decoupage with them in mind, but I didn't have a stitched pattern large enough. So this pattern I enlarged using my printer beforehand. It fits perfectly.

I used extra fine glitter around the scalloped edge of the swan decoupage, in an orangey/brown colour. Then I teamed it up with some mirri card in almost the exact colour to add as my layering piece.
The wording is by using Robert Addams dies in the same mirri card.

My husband has gone fishing for a couple of days, went yesterday, so I've got plans to stay in my craft room all day. I'm only popping out for the toilet, to make coffee, and to take the dog for a walk LOL !! So hopefully I will get a few things completed in that time. The housework can wait !!!!!!!

Enjoy your day. x
