4th Anniversary Card

Another LOTV Die Cut Image used here - My colouring skills have not improved THAT much!

This card was made for a friend in work to give to her hubby.
It was their 4th Wedding Anniversary and I wasn't inspired by the tradition 'Flower/Vegatable' theme that is given when you search for Anniversaries by years!!!

The sentiments were done on the PC, one is his name and the other says '4 Wonderful Years'

I'm sure I made this to a challenge sketch (I don't usually come up with layouts like this without one!), but can't find it - maybe it was an older one???

The papers are from the gorgeous stack that I am using loads of lately - please tell me I'm not the only one who finds papers they love and then uses them to death!!! - 'First Edition - Love Letters'.
The edges are distressed with my Making Memories Distressing tool and a little TH 'Old Paper' Distressing Ink added. I'm so pleased that my distressing has evolved from my first few attempts that I re-named  'traumatising'!!!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and those of you in the UK who are having more snow (sorry but the sun is shining here in South Wales!) stay in and craft - perfect excuse!
