Quirky Anniversary

 I am so glad to 'see' (via the stats)  you have visited.
Winter has well and truly arrived here in the Antipodes, and I have been busy in the studio.  I also had a card class to run this week.

I am going to share a rather quirky card I made for our anniversary recently.

I made the moon by cutting a circle with a die, and then moved the die and re-cut it.  The hearts are 'confetti' that I have had for years, as are the letter set of stamps which have not seen ink before now.

The letters were deliberately stamped randomly and then embossed.  I also stamped them loosely on the inside.

I had to give the card before I was able to photograph it, hence the yellow post-it note across where I had written.

A closer view...

The salutation is from a retired Layers of Color set, and IRL is bright red - for whatever reason the computer changed the colour when I cropped the image.

To finish the inside panel I die cut three hearts and added the same confetti to the centre of them that I had used on the outside.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting, and any comments you may leave are very much appreciated.
May your day be blessed
