Sketch Saturday #48, an Anniversary card

Hi folks!!
I love this weeks sketch over on Sketch Saturday, such a pleasure to work with. A huge thanks to Jo for giving us such great sketches to use every week. It's the last Saturday of the month and so The Craft Barn are sponsoring us. There are two stamps up for grabs. One of them is 'Huggles' which I drew for the Kadoodle range. There is lots of fabulous inspiration from the DT and also a beautiful card made by our Guest DT Diane *thanks* for being such a star Diane :o)
I made this card a little while ago as I knew I would be busy this weekend. It's the twins birthday party today and we've got 19 kids coming to their Peter Pan & Tinkerbell bouncy castle party.
Anyway, back to the card.... I love the base layer of this card, it's a DCWV embossed white card blank which I chalked. I've used my Nestabilities, Martha Stewart border punch, Prima flowers, Woodware punches, self adhesive pearls, Velvet ribbon and Go Kreate alphabet dies. The image is the gorgeous Hanglar and Stanglar wedding couple which I have coloured with distress inks.
I was asked to make this card by my friend Lee. He has already given it to his wife, and I'm thrilled to report that she loves it so much she's framing it!!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx

This is gorgeous Sandra, I'm not surprised it is treasured by the lady who received it. The little lift up flap is inspired.

Oh Sandra, this is such a beautiful anniversary creation, no wonder its being framed by the proud recipients. Love the idea of the year underneath the flip up tag. Hope you survived the twins party. Hugs from Desire
