Anniversary Waltz

The lovely Lythan dared us this week;

'This week, my turn (Lythan) to choose the dare falls on my wedding anniversary. We've now been married so long we don't have a gift name associated as we are supposed to be saving up for Silver... Actually the first year we were married we forgot to buy cards for each other at all. So this year I thought I would help myself remember by having
Happy Anniversary
as the theme. It doesn't have to be Wedding Anniversary, it could be Anniversary of Adoption, moving house - whatever comes to mind!'

I combined Lythan's anniversary theme with the Polka Dot Tea Party theme from The Shabby Tea Room and I made this;

I used;
Rather old but still very nice Crate Paper paper
A smidgen of OA (October Afternoon) paper
Papermania Die cut
Wild Orchid Flowers
Cosmo Cricket letters (trimmed a spare letter for the apostrophe)
Sizzix frame die
Bazzill brad
Papermania pearl and eyelet
Handmade Portuguese lace
Ikea paper string
Hand stitching and inking.

Have a great weekend!
