Wedding Anniversary card

This is currently winging its way to Germany, a card for my OH's son Matt and his wife Kai. Although they know about this blog it's doubtful, with two little ones to run after, that they'll call in to have a peek. If they do, Happy Anniversary for 12th May - and see you all soon :)



I went back to my favourite, the easel card. The pink and red hearts paper is from a Dovecraft Back to Basics pack, the image is a LOTV Cute Square (Love and Romance), the sentiment is from Whimsy. The pink and white pearls, entwined hearts charm, bakers twine, white guipure lace and the lovely baby pink Wild Orchid roses are all from my stash. The white ribbon with silver hearts on was bought on one of our visits to Matt and Kai - so it's finding its way back home to Germany right now! As they have a really nice garden, the image seemed very appropriate......not sure if they're into heart shaped topiary just yet though :))

I'm entering this for the latest Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge, which is White plus 2 with a twist. I couldn't see any real 'twists' in the DT cards but, if asked, then my twist is the entwined hearts - or even the topiary heart which would surely be twisted round wire to make a shape like that in real life. Oh, and the bakers twine is twisted of course :))

  7. Thank you so much ladies for the sweet comments! I think I over- analysed the twist huh - knew I had to use Wild Orchid roses and so I looked for something additional and more complicated. Duh!! Di x
