Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad

On June 11th, 46 years ago my mum and dad tied the knot, and are still going strong. A true inspiration and I hope that my DH and I can instill the same values of the sanctity of marriage into our littlies one day too. (It'll be 20 yrs for us this September!) My little sis and her husband also married on June 11th, so share the same anniversay, although they tied the knot just 12 months ago! (Click HERE to see the card I have made for them.)

So, I have made a card using one of Paula's adorable images from Pollycraft, here it is:

I have coloured this adorable pair using my Promarkers and cut them out.

My DPs are Dovecraft Sugar n Spice and have been paired with some kraft card and pale turquoise/tea green card. I die-cut some leaves and flourishes (with added flat-backed pearls) and the flowers are Dovecraft Natural collection, which I gently inked and added a card candi dot to the centre.

I have used a new product on this card, which I had a real beast of a job to track down! I had seen it on a one of my blog-surfing sessions, its called Magic Mesh, and is a self-adhesive roll of mesh, which is repositionable and is made in the USA (for details click HERE.) I love it, but its quite expensive, so it'll only be making an appearance on special occasions!!! Lol! The ribbon is from Mei Flower and the sentiment has been personalised.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
My Sheri Crafts #86 - Summer Lovin'
The Squirrel & the Fox #19 - Summer (or Winter.)
Anything Goes #68 - Anniversaries.
I Brake for Challenges - School's Out for Summer.
