Anniversary Card ASAP

 Morning it was my 70th birthday yesterday OMG when you see it actually written down!!!

Moving swiftylt on lol I was asked for an anniversary card on pretty much short notice as in next day -so checked out the many layers on my desk.

Found a ready made stencilled background using stencil from Imagination Crafts/Creative Expressions,some die-cut flowers/Elizabeth Craft Designs- from remnants of another background,a die-cut frame from Spellbinders so just added a few more die-cut leaves from Elizabeth Craft Designs/Joanna Sheen and The Works.Script and sentiment stamps were craft mag freebies,twine,gems and little Bee were from stash.
