Paper Sweeties Sketch #7

Hi there!

It's time for the monthly challenge over at Paper Sweeties!
Are you creating any wedding and anniversary
cards needed for friends and family for this time of
year?  Well, I needed an anniversary card for a friend's
25th wedding anniversary!  And, I cannot wait to see her
expression when she sees this card.  She is one of my
crafty friends who enjoys making cards, too!:-) So, I
know she'll appreciate all the love I put into making
this card!

I started with a pink card base.  I used Sissix heart dies
for the focal point.  A doily from Martha Stewart was
placed behind the pink heart.  Glitter flowers and birds
were placed.  The numbers are from Paper Sweeties
using the stamp set Fancy Monograms.  This set is a
must have for your crafting needs!  The set includes
numbers and letters.  And, doesn't it add an elegant
touch?  The sentiment is from the stamp set
Make Today Beautiful.  For the finishing touches
I added ribbon, flowers, border, pearls and button.

Ok friends, time to get back to the craft table to
make more cards!  Can you believe it's the first
of May today?  I think the whole month of April
was a blur for me.  More signs of spring are seen
here and there, which is a welcome since spring
is very late this year.  But, with warmer temps
and beautiful flowers it certainly puts a big smile
on my face!:-) 

Please go on over and see what the Paper Sweeties
gals came up with for your inspiration for this monthly
challenge!  You will be guaranteed awesome
inspiration!  Do take care and have fun creating!
