Senior love

   The challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More this time has the theme love. I thought what better than the love between two of the older generation and made this anniversary card.
   The image called 'Flirty Seniors' is from Make it Crafty. I stamped it onto watercolour card but coloured it using Promarkers. It wasn't so easy to blend the inks as on the usual card that I use but it seemed to work as long as I was careful at the edges of each section. I then matted it onto black core'dinations cardstock, wrapped ribbon round two corners and then matted onto cream card. The words were cut from deep red core'dinatios cardstock using tattered Lace dies.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

   Ooh La La Creations - love
