Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone, I've been playing with some new toys, purchased with that wonderful $50 win from Simon Says Stamp. I spent my winnings on a Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die set, a Nellie's doily die and a rubber stamp. I've been trying out the dies this afternoon...

 The backing paper is Dovecraft, from their Charcoal prints and everything else is made with plain cardstock. I've added a bow and some pearls at the corners, which have been punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch. I used a peeloff for the sentiment.

 The flower is really simple to make. Cut it, emboss it and roll it up! Love it....

I would like to enter this in the following:-
Anything goes - Anniversaries 
Cropstop - Let's get fancy, use a doily

I hope you like this. I think it's quite striking. Thanks for visiting.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
