Hedgie Anniversary

Today's share is the Wedding Anniversary I made for my husband - 17 years this week wherever those years have gone!!

You will know if you are a regular viewer that bicycles are rather a big thing in this house so I felt I needed to use this chap as I hadn't done before.

It's from a transparent Penny Black set called 'hedgie friends'.  I've coloured it in copics and added some glossy accents on the wheels before punching out and mounting on a die cut.

I am trying this year to be more adventurous with colours, using different layers and generally playing a bit more with cards - this is one result of that!

Hedgie has been layered on a die cut fence which was mounted on a piece of blue that had been treated to some Martha Stewart punch-around-the page 'Cherish' action.

The next 2 layers are very much stolen as a format from a card I did on a recent workshop.  The bottom layer has had it's corners invert punched and some little gems added.

Main image finished with a button, punched hearts and a stamped sentiment which was punched out with the trusty SU label punches.


  1. Lovely colourful card Jill perfect card for Graham and congrats on your anniversary
