Simply Create Too Challenge 35 - Use Your Stash

It's time for another Simply Create Too challenge and the theme this fortnight is:

Use Your Stash

I was asked by my cousin Claire, who got married last year to make an Anniversary card for her husband Ross.  They generously gave me all the left over card, ribbon etc from when they made their Wedding Stationery so that is what I've used for the card - plus the first Anniversary is Paper so I thought it quite apt!

I've double layered the card blank and added dotted liquid pearls around the edge.  I've layered two hearts in the centre and then punched lots of other hearts from the same card and also the vellum (inserts for the stationery).

I've slightly curled the vellum hearts and then added a half pearl to the centre.  The ribbon is also from the Wedding stationery (place cards) and the sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Rather pleased with the card especially as I used virtually everything from their Wedding too!

Good luck with the challenge!
