All Loved Up

Finally seem to be getting back into things now, and seem to be getting better (touch wood - cos I thought that last week too) so can hopefully get some more things done.

Anyways going to be quick as I want to get on and get a card made before bed, so onto today's card. This card is for Ian - we've been together for a year on Saturday :) I can't believe how quickly it's gone :) but it's great he makes me so happy, I love him so so so much (it's ok I'll stop there before you start reaching for the sick bags lol). I have to say I love how this card has come out. My starting point was the use a photo challenge on Sweet Stampin' Challenge so I knew straight away I wanted to use one of the pictures of my flowers that Ian got me for Valentine's Day last year, and this Forever Friends paper just suited the style so well. Some Rub-ons for the sentiment and some gems for a bit of sparkle, and cos I'm a nice NO GLITTER (poor Ian is normally covered in the stuff by the time he goes home) so really hope he likes it.


Supplies: 'Forever Friends' Paper, Rub-ons by Doodlebug
Extras: Gems, Photo, White Card, Red Ink Pad, Square Punch, Heart Punch

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

For Fun Challenges - Use Gems or Glitter

woops forgot to include a stamped image will have to have another go with a different photo




Right that's it for now, I've got to try and get another card finished and want an early night so I can try and get back to feeling normal lol XOX

PS this is the original photo that I used

Love the layout of your card. The bling on the bottom really grounds your card and emphasizes your sentiment.
