Rapid Anniversary

Welcome

I suddenly realised I needed an anniversary card for a family member today - and that was in the early afternoon.  As it was this card came together in about 20 minutes.


My first thought was to use an image from Clearly Vintage, and I printed it off after sizing it to fit the card.  I distressed the edges and sponged with Faded Denim D.I.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment, and also distressed and sponged it after cutting it to a banner shape.  I then added a strip of pearls to the end of the banner,


to the top corner,


and randomly over the flowers - I think I am starting to 'get' the random thing, as this went quickly and was not too painful for this right-brained crafter!!


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may bless me with are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed

Love how lacy these flowers look. I really struggle with "Random" Your random placement of the pearls looks great.
