Happy Anniversary card

Hello all.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to face the Monday blues with a spring in your step :-)

I have a wedding anniversary card to share with you today!  This is a card a made for my daughter and her hubby.

 The heart easel card with the swans.

I stamped the cattails on the bottom of the inside of the card in order to make the scene a little more complete.

Recipe:
Silhouette Card design #116469
Cardstock:
GinaK Heavy Weight - White
The Paper Studio - Blue
Dies:
Marianne - Tiny's Swans & Cattails
Banner - Spellbinders
Tall Grass - io Dies
Stamps:
Cattails Border Stamp - Marianne Designs
Sentiment - Happy Days - Cardz TV
Memento Inks to shade & stamp
Swiss Dots Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Copic Markers to colour and shade

The inspiration to make this card came from  Astrid of Astrids Kaarten.  She has numerous cards on her blog using these beautiful swan dies.  The second swan was definitely a challenge till I figured out the way to reverse the die and emboss it.  I had never done this before, but as I always say, you learn something new everyday and you're never too old to learn new things :-)

Well, that is all for today folks.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back.  Remember to leave a birthday comment here to be entered into my birthday give away.
I will be back on Wednesday with another challenge at Crafty Gals Cornet!

Till then,
Crafty Hugs.
