Anniversary Card

 A late posting today and have an anniversary card to show that I made for my eldest Son and DIL for next month but am safe as they don't read my blog---very rude of them!!!

The very back  paper I made with a few stamps and distress ink-then the next P. piece was made scoring the cardstock every inch and then draging a brown and green distress ink pad down the card to produce the wood effect.The small scrap piece was from stash and the stamp is from Chocolate Baroque stamped twice and 3-D the flower and paper pieced the tag part after stamping onto a book page,the stamped sentiment is also Chocolate Baroque-the image was watercoloured with my Art by Marlene watercolours.

Your card is so beautifully coordinated from the front layer all the way to the back. Love the colors and flowers. None of my family look at my blog, either, but it's not their cup of tea so no surprise.
