I really should have been doing some housework this lunchtime but Thomas tested my patience to the limit all morning so while he took a nap I decided on a bit of ‘me’ time and finished this card. I have an anniversary, a family birthday and a wedding all coming up in the next week so I’m on a mission to get all the cards done in time.
This is for my sister and brother-in-laws wedding anniversary this weekend. The layout was a lovely one to use – I definitely seem to prefer symmetrical sketches. There’s plenty of embellishments on this card, don’t think I could have fitted anymore on! And what a difference photographing the card in natural light! I really must try and do this every time.
