Fuchsia Anniversary

The mix of card requests recently is certainly varied.

This card was for a colleague who is celebrating their 30th Wedding Anniversary this week.

After going through a few designs and some stamps (so new I hadn't made a card with them) it turned out his wife's favourite flowers are fuchsias, so this stamp it had to be!
This was a new Woodware purchase.

I've stamped it on plain card and re-stamped for the actual petals which I've coloured in copics, cut out and added to the base.  The sepals and buds I have paper pieced.

The leaves are a combination of colouring the original image and colouring separate leaves which I have 3D'd on top.  Some of the stamens have a touch of stickles too.

I've daubed round the edge of this piece and double mounted, the bottom layer using a fiskars punch - which I only found whilst trying to find an SU one I had mislaid!

Computer generated sentiment layered on card and ribbon.

The card itself is Anna Marie pearl card and I've used 4 large pearls on the corner of the main image and little ones in the punched border to bring in the fact that it is a pearl anniversary.
