Mum & Dad's Anniversary

Just love this image. So quirky and really apt for an anniversary card. Fleur allowed me to borrow this stamp to make this card. I decided to go for a bit of an aged look seeing as my parents have been married a while now (over 40years).

Mo Manning - Jack & Ginger
Swirl - My Minds Eye
Catslife Press - Circle Sentiment
Stampin up - Sentiment
Other Bits:
Martha Stewart - Doily lace punch
Woodware - Flower punches
Linene thread
Paper from stash
Tim Holtz distress inks - Antique Linen
Promarkers to colour image

Thanks for looking Nicky xx

Hi Nicola
Ohh so perfect, I hope your Mum and Dad can take a joke as the couple on this stamp look ancient, and I'm sure a "wee young thing" like you can't have elderley parents!
