A Special Day

Good morning. I had intended to share another Christmas gift with you today but I spent most of the weekend at the lake working on my tan so I did not get that completed. I will take a moment to remind you though that you do still have one week remaining to enter the current ABC Christmas challenge where the current theme is M for Make a Gift.

I was asked to make a special card for a 50th wedding anniversary last week. This wonderful Teddy Bo image was just perfect for the occasion. I coloured it up to match my new Indie Bloom papers from MME that had just arrived in the mail a few days before. You gotta love happy mail. I have added lots of lace and flowers to further add to the romantic feeling of the card.  

The inside of the card was then decked out to match with the front using more papers from the same collection and a wonderful sentiment stamp that I had in my ever growing collection.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

your card is certainly special, it's gorgeous in every detail....as for the tan... here in the UK with all the rain it's more a case of rust .
