For Mom & Dad

My parents celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary tomorrow (20th March)
This is the card that I have made them (although there are now added flowers to the blue panel too, but took this pic beforehand)

The image and papers are from Stampin Up, the image is from their summer by the sea stamp set and the papers are called Bella Bleu.
I coloured the image with ProMarkers, the text is handwritten.
The pretty heart border strip was made using a fiskars punch.

This card is my DT card for Sketch Saturday too, this week we are being sponsored by the lovely Nikki and Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

For this weekend you can get a massive 25% off ALL High Hopes, C.C. Designs and The Greeting Farm Stamps! what a great offer eh?... go grab a bargain!

Here's a pic of the card, in daylight, with the flowers.
The flowers were punched using my SU boho blossoms punch (the largest flower) and my nellie snellen stamen punch, securing with a brad in the centre of each. I used a woodware punch for the leaves.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Wild Orchid - to use die cuts or punches
Papertake Weekly - Trio Tastic (3 flowers)
Charisma Cardz - die cuts (does punching count too?)

Please go visit my SS sisters to see their fantastic cards this week
Have a great weekend xx
