I used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#129 and the inspiration photo from Winnie & Walter's Playdate - W&WPD#1. To create the bokeh effect I used the a couple of stamps from Big Bang Confetti, inking them up with Brilliance ink which has a lovely shimmer, and echoes the W&W image. I stamped the journal style heart on to white card in grey and used words from a couple of sets to create the greeting; I added the kisses by hand. I cut out the heart and added a bit of definition to the edge by running a grey Copic around it. I didn't want to hide the pretty bokeh panel, so I cut a panel of vellum and stamped the sentiment in Versafine and then heat embossed with clear powder. I ran the vellum through my Xyron to make it self-adhesive, that way you don't see the adhesive! I finished by adhering the heart with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a mat panel of pink and stamped another heart with a greeting. I've included a close up of the heart to show the pretty colours!
The image on the W&W graphic suggested family to me and, as it's our anniversary next month, I though I'd make a card for Jonathan. We will be celebrating 13 years of marriage on 22nd April!! The time has simply flown by. I know I've posted this card early, and I know that Jonathan will see it, but he's terrible at remembering - so this is a BIG hint!!! That's all for now. I suppose I'd better get on with ironing - again! See Ya!!
