Happy 1st Anniversary!

Good Afternoon bloggers, how are you all enjoying the sunshine? I keep hearing differing stories as to when it's going to break, I don't want to think about it though, I am enjoying this gorgeous mini heatwave and don't want it to end!

Today's card is for my dear sister and her hubby's 1st wedding anniversary, which is in a couple of weeks time.
I have used an adorable image from The Stamping Boutique called Umbrella Love Birds. The DPs are Pink Petticoat, freebies from one of my magazines ages ago. I have used my first piece of cheesecloth behind the panel & image, (inspired by my teamie at The Crafty Pad,  Pauline.) The image has been coloured with Promarkers and mounted so it looks as if its sitting on the lilac organza ribbon.
I added some brads to the top and bottom corners (from my stash from years ago.) The sentiment is an adapted freebie, I added their names for a more personal touch.
Finally the flower & leaves die cuts, made from my newest die. I added some pinflair to the centre and then some pink seed-beads.
There is also a diecut border at the bottom which I inked to match (bought some of these in white from ebay.)

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking.
