Bronze it is.

I'm really getting into this card making.  One of my favourite magazines for inspiration is ' Crafts Beautiful'. I saw a lovely idea for a Wedding card by Niki Rowlands in there (used it for little boys card but can't show you that one until after this Saturday)!
 Now it just so happens that is is Fluff's Anniversary so I adapted the design for a Wedding Anniversary card. The good old World, Wide Web tells me that 8yrs is Bronze so that sent me skuttling off to my stash of papers. Found this lovely satin bronze paper and some plain pink card stock. Typed up some appropriate sentences in word and then ran the pink card through my printer.  Now I have my very own printed design! Matted the pink onto cream card and used ink (to match the wording) to distress  around the edges. I love this heart die(Sizzix 655207) as it gives a really deep embossed design .Lace edging strip is a Martha Stewart punch which I layered up with a maroon satin ribbon. Sentiment was printed out in word and then die cut using the Ornate shape in The Sizzix trio (656322).

This fab card is even better IRL. I noticed the paper you made first, then the heart! Didn't know we were bronze, if I had, I could've bought something for VUH. It's ok, I still have the rest of the year, I should think broze would make a fairly substantial weapon...! ;) xxx
