Fitztown - Anniversary/Love

My card this week uses the image Valentine 4 and it's available for you to buy here at the Fitztown Store. The theme this time at the Fitztown Challenge Blog is Anniversary or Love.

The scalloped card blank is by Craft UK. The gold glitter paper is by Papermania and I rounded all the corners using my Carl punch. I embossed a sheet of white paper using a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder and then, after using a Spellbinder Grand square scalloped nestie, matted it on to the gold glitter. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and carefully cut round the heart leaving a very small white border. After adding the image to the embossed background I used a Memory Box die for the heart which I set in the bottom right corner. My Spellbinder dies came out and I cut 50 in gold card to add at a slight angle to the bottom left.

It would have been our 50th wedding anniversary on 14th of this month and this theme came just at the right time. We had a very happy marriage for almost 48 years and Eric's never far from my thoughts, but especially so at this time.
