autumnal anniversary


Autumn can be a season with such contrasting days, it can be dull and miserable and be cold and wet and the leaves on the trees when turning colour in these conditions just add to the dreary feel. In contrast when the skies are clear and bright the blue just seems to make the turning leaves so vibrant that they dance as they shimmer and fall in the wind and even though it may be cold in the shade the sunshine still offers some warmth.                                                             My sister in law and her hubby and my brother both chose to marry in October. This card is for my sister in law and her hubby, hopefully she won't see it before the day. I chose to use this cute image
 from LOTV and go with the rich autumn colours and coloured with promarkers. 


I used a cram base card and added yellow/orange papers from papermania as the base layer. The gold heart card is from qvc ages ago.
I used x cut and spellbinders dies to mount the image on and used cream card for the sentiment which I stamped in brown ink.

I added cream ribbon and tied with a knot and finished with some flowers from my stash in rust and yellows adding pearls for the centres.
I'm hoping the happy couple enjoy their 11th anniversary and like my card in celebration of their happy day.
