Anniversaries and Special Occasions



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and Kath has chosen the theme of 'Anniversaries and Special Occasions'. Our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons.

This was a commissioned card back in June with the brief of not too fussy and some lilac ribbon to reflect the bridesmaids dressed. I used a Tattered Lace pin dot heart and a smaller plain one which I embossed and layered with foam pads. The sentiment is computer generated and I added some flowers, TL Ivy, pearls and lilac and silver ribbons.

My teamies have come up with some super inspiration as always so I do hope you will pop over and take a peek and of course join in the challenge this week.
