Anniversay dash!

Morning Folks!! This is a rare event for me - finishing a card and blogging in the morning, I'm more of a night owl but I am going away for a few days and I was determined to get this card finished before I left. It's for my husband as it's our 15th wedding anniversary next week - doesn't time fly by when you are having fun... ?? It would have been finished yesterday afternoon but he came home early and I never got back to it!! I have used this cute image from Lexi's Creations which you can find in her new shop Fairy Dust crafts. I decided to take up the challenge at Lexi's Creations and paper piece the bear - note to self here, use paper for this not kraft card as it would have been much easier.. but I am pleased with the way it came out!!

I wanted to keep the card quite simple as Hubby isn't really into flowery cards!! So I decided to go for an easel card for interest and also because I love making them and just embellished it with a couple of pieces of ribbon and a heart button. Somehow it still looked a bit bare so I added a sprinkle of glitter, I'm now wearing quite a bit too!!

The backing paper has come out more pink than red in the photos, in real life it is a bit darker!

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Teddy Bears
Simon says Challenge - Sing it baby, well it has to be 'Something's gotten hold of my heart'
