It's our wedding annivesary at the end of this month, so I wanted to 'crack open' my favourite papers in the world, Basic Grey BitterSweet, plus ink up 2 new stamps from the whole stack of new Magnolia ones I received for my birthday, and make a card for my darling hubby.

I followed this week's sketch by Michelle over at A Spoon Full of Sugar, which was quite a challenge as my 'image plate' turned out a little bigger than it probably should be! I also used one of my new Martha Stewart Edge Punches and my new Woodware grass and butterfly punches (again, part of my Birthday stash ... yes I was a VERY lucky girl!).

I'm also going to enter this card into this week's Stamp Something Challenge, which is entitled 'Favourites'. I have to say that everything on this card is my favourite - prima flowers, BitterSweet BG paper, MS punch, magnolia stamps.... just everything!! And of course, it has been made for my favourite person (after my daughter, of course), my husband! (all together now....ahhhhh!).

TFL, peeps! Have a good evening!

Hugs, Sem x
