Boy did I nearly make a major boo-boo!! I got a text from my sister this morning asking me if this year is one our bothers' silver wedding anniversary so between us we worked out that it is - and then we realised that it's tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about having to get moving sharpish! I'm ever so pleased that I created the pre-coloured flower collection now - it really came into it's own today. Because it's the 25th, I still wanted it to be as special as it would have been if I'd left myself more time. Of course, because I needed it in a hurry, my mind went blank so I went in search of a sketch to kick start me and found this lovely one at Sketch For You To Try. I've made the card 21cm x 21cm and I printed the pre-coloured pink roses posy onto white pearlescent paper and cut it out with a Marianne designs frame die. The two dps are from the embossed hearts and mottled stone collections. The flower is a 3D short petal one that I've coloured using twinkling H2Os - I got the idea to put the 25 in the flower centre from the lovely Irene.
I'm also entering my card in these challenges and then I'll probably go for a nice lie down in a darkened room!
