You warm my heart

Today is my anniversary.  Although it is very feminine, this card says exactly how I feel about my DH!
Of course, he will get a  much more masculine card from me today!  This one will go to my son for him to give to his special girl.


  

This is a sentiment from the store at Fresh Brewed Designs.  I did this as a DT card for the current challenge which is "White on White with one other color".  You can play along until the next challenge gets posted on Wednesday.
The cardstock is Neenah solar white.  The ink is Memento tuxedo black and angel pink.
The diecuts are Spellbinders, Mariannes and Fiskars.  Liquid pearls a snippit of ribbon and a
brick wall cuttlebug embossing folder finish it off.
This card may be entered in the following challenges:

Beautiful card Gale with some very special details! Please make sure you have uploaded this gorgeous piece of work in both challenges as just mentioning it wont count and I wouldn't want you to miss out. Our 'Lots of...' challenge ends at the end of this week but the Celebration challenge lasts until 16th Sept.
Thanks for entering both our challenges and good luck!
Love Nicola xxx

Hello Gale

Sorry I am a bit late getting here, but had a bit of a manic weekend of teaching.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely work and joining in my "You have been framed" theme at Allsorts this week and good luck with the draw.
