Happy Anniversary

Happy Friday to you all.  Hope you have a lovely weekend planned with some crafty time included.

I've made an anniversary card which fits the Friday Mashup this week which is to use ribbons and/or bows and the mash up is to have a decorative edge.  I haven't mashed up this week.

I've started with a Basic Black card base and a mat of Blushing Bride.  On this some Very Vanilla embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  I sponged Blushing Bride over the embossed areas and corner rounded.

I wrapped Basic Black Satin Ribbon around the mat and made a lovely lush bow.  I punched out a Basic Black Blossom with the Blossom Punch.  Added, on Dimensionals, a 1 3/4" Circle of Very Vanilla stamped with a Perfect Plum heart from I {heart} hearts.  A Basic Rhinestone adds a little sparkle.  Then attached to the ribbon I made some tags using Tiny Tags and the Tag Punch

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.  x
