One Layer Anniversary

Welcome - thank you for visiting. 
 I needed a plethora of anniversary cards recently, and this is one of them.


I went for a single layer with sponging and random word stamps from the Layers of Colour set The Love Chapter for the background.


The sentiment was stamped and embossed and cut using a Lacy Circle spellbinders die, and then a scrap of sparkly ribbon was  wound around it.


The charm was attached with the same ribbon that I used on the circle, which had by now run out, so I had to use a silver edged ribbon for the bow.


The band across the base was punched both sides and then sponged with a pearlised ink. A clear chiffon silver edged ribbon was layered over this and the wee letter buttons added, then some rhinestones.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.

How soft and pretty- and lots of gorgeous accents! How cool is the die cut and the ribbon woven through the die.

The stamped words make a lovely background paper. The silver embossed words work beautifully with the card too.
