Our Anniversary card & Sketch Saturday #64

Hi folks!
This should be the last of my Scheduled posts. It's a card I intend to give to my gorgeous hubby as it' s our wedding anniversary on 20th and we will be celebrating 15 years. I'm so chuffed with how it turned out, I can't stop looking at it! I followed Jo's fabulous sketch on Sketch Saturday. Please check out the blog for details of this weeks sponsor and prize as I haven't got a 'Scooby-Doo'. Mina is still with us as guest designer and of course I'm am confident that our resident DT have created something wonderful with Jo's sketch.
The papers for this card are all by K&Co. It's the range called 'Margot' I believe. The panel behind Tilda and Edwin is beautifully glittered...a real speciality paper. I cut the large gold Mirri board oval with my Cricut but then I cut out the centre with the largest Nestability oval. I covered the aperture with 3 layers of tulle. The corners are cut with a Quickutz die. The beautiful flowers are brads and were in the 'Margot' kit. I used a Martha Stewart boarder punch to create the scalloped edge. I made the sentiment using my Xyron Design Runner. (Having a bit of a 're-discovery' moment with this little machine... you may see it featured lots more) Tilda and Edwin are coloured with Copic markers. I finished the card off with some lush brown velvet ribbon.
Hope you get a chance to join in with this weeks challenge.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx
