365 Cards Day 98, GCA #43, Dutch Dare #51 & Flourishes

It's Pam's 11th wedding anniversary today, Day 98 over at 365 Cards, so the challenge we were set was to make an annivesary card where the predominant colour is white. This card has been made to fit in with 4 challenges in total, details below.

365 Cards Day 98 - Make an Anniversary card where the main colour is white
Get Creative with Ann Challenge #43 - Clean & Simple (limited layers and embellishments)
Dutch Dare # 51 - Decorate the inside of your card
Flourishes - Make a 10 minute card (I didn't include choosing the materials in that time)

The size of card is a 4" square. I picked a love quote from a DCWV rub on book and added this to a fake nestability mat which I have edged in blue pearlescent ink. The ribbon is a self adhesive one by Docrafts and the silver heart charm was added to a jump ring and came from a card set at Poundland.

The inside was decorated with an offcut of HOTP paper from the Sapphire cardmakers pack. I used my Martha Stewart border punch on it to pretty it up a bit. The tag is from the same kit, I punched the bottom edge, stuck on the last bit of ribbon and added a Craftwork Cards card candy for the 'brad'. Papermania silver peel offs provided the sentiment and the little hearts.

Well, that's me completed a full week's card challenges at 365 and now it off to bed as it is gone 1am in the UK. Night Night ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz :)

Edited 08/06 I have just found out that I won the challenge over at Get Creative with Ann for this card :) Look at the lovely goodies I have won! Thank you Ann
