Anniversary Card

An CAS anniversary card today I made for friends of ours.  

I used a Creative Expressions 'Swirling Heart' embossing folder and added tiny white pearls to the die cut heart.

I am joining in the following challenges:

I returned home tonight after a lovely weekend at a Stampin' Up retreat.  I'll post a photo later of all the cards I made.  My friend and I intended coming home overnight on Saturday, but as the windiest day and night of the year was forecast, we decided to book a room and stay at the hotel.  I took these photos in the hotel grounds - so it looks like we made a wise decision!


  1. Brilliant Liz, love the use of die/s used on this beautiful creative design. Thanks for entering into our current challenge. Hope to see you in our challenges again.

  7. I love your card and it makes a wonderful anniversary card. I am glad you stayed safe and stayed in a hotel instead of traveling in the strong winds.

  8. A really lovely Anniversary card, a great EF which looks super in the red card and a gorgeous heart die especially with the addition of the pearls. Thank you for joining our 'At least one heart' challenge at Allsorts.
