SIP 46 PCCCS193

Funny how no matter how big your stash of completed cards is, you never seem to have the one you want. After getting a present for my brother's 25th wedding celebrations this weekend, I realised I had no silver anniversary cards! Rush job in the sense that we're leaving to travel over to his place very early tomorrow so it had to be made tonight.  I've taken inspiration from two challenges for my brother's card.

Firstly, the tic-tac-toe challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.

I'm playing the first column: Flowers, Bling, Pink.

Secondly, the sketch at The Paper Craft Crew Challenge.





I like the subtle extra bling in the silver thread that's behind the floral cluster. I'm also very happy with the extra zing in the softly sponged flowers.

Update: So delighted to be a Top Pick at The Paper Craft Crew.
