Terracotta love



   It is one of my step daughter's wedding anniversary on Tuesday,but as I have been spending a large amount of time visiting my husband in hospital I had to make a fairly quick card. This is the result. I like the cute cats and thought the image lent itself well to a monochromatic look.
   I matted and layered a square of designer paper from Kanban Crafts and mirri card onto white card. I then cut a strip of paper and die cut the daisy design, to tie in with the daisy in the image, using a Spellbinders die from the classic ric rac set. Having mounted it onto mirri card I fixed it to the lower half of the card.
   The stamped image from Lili of the Valley called 'Pots of love' was coloured using Promarkers. I dusted the edges with distress inks and then matted it onto mirri card. I applied glossy accents to the noses of the cats and Stickles glitter glue to the flower pot and flower centre of the image and to the centres of the daisies in the border strip. I then glittered the sentiment in the image.
   Finally I added the happy anniversary sentiment.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
