Tiddly Inks Anniversary card for my hubby

Hi there, thanks for coming to see my card I made for my hubby. It's our 17 year wedding anniversary on the weekend and I love to make him a card each year. He always buys me a card but writes such beautiful things each time, I really look forward to it (does that sound a bit soppy lol??)

I have used this gorgeous digi image from Tiddly Inks twice before which is very unusual for me but I'm not great at shadings and yet this dress is so easy to give colour and texture to so maybe that's why I have a soft spot for it hehe. If you click on the label at the bottom of this post that says Tiddly Inks it will show my other two cards, they are all very different, I hope you'll check them out. I love this sentiment and thought it goes so beautifully with the image as they seem to be just enjoying the moment. 

The gorgeous antique gold flourish and pearls are by Flourish with a Bling, aren't they beautiful? They come in a set of 2 and some pearls as well and they are named after my daughter Chloe (I designed this flourish).

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
