Anniversary 2

Hi friends.
Just a quick post with another anniversary card that I thought might be suitable for the Less is More this sketch......

I am never 100% happy with my CAS cards and always think how fantastic other peoples look.......and as for being quick to takes me ages!

 The swirl is a Sue Wilson Die cut into the edge of the white card and then overlayed on the pale pink which is Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable. I know in the photo it looks like the pink is on top. I swapped the sentiment to the top and added the champagne old stamp from stash but so useful. I coloured them and added diamond glaze for the shine.
A bit of a deviation from the sketch I have to say........but my you think I will get away with it?

Ok well that's it for now.....yes I am a bit like a bus.......don't appear for ages and then two together! Keeps you on your toes....not to mention me!

Enjoy your day and take care............I really appreciate your visits.
