Good morning bloggers!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


As I don't have any weddings coming up I decided to go with the Anniversary theme:

I thought it would make a lovely card to give to my husband for our anniversary, although its not til October!!  I have used the gorgeous Flower Set by Wendy which is available here from Digital Delights.  You get quite a bit in the set and it also comes in a pre-coloured version - 

I very lightly coloured the image and cut it out with SB Labels (One I think!).  The border was made with SB A2 Bracket Borders.  I embossed the Centura Pearl with my Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder and added gems to it.  The butterfly is a Memory Box die.

Our sponsor this week is:

the lucky winner will get a $15 Store card!  Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the DT have done for some more inspiration!

Thank you for taking the time out to visit me today!  See you soon, take care xx
