Happy Anniversary

There is a celebration going on at Double Trouble Challenge #86 and Trouble Maker says that you must decide what occasion to celebrate. (I decided to celebrate an anniversary.) Double Dare is hoping you'll take our option to link your card to our partner If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #157. Twisted Sister would like to see you use the inspiration photo below provided by our partner.

I had this vintage-style illustration of two children and thought it was perfect to use for a married couple who have been together for many years. I added some stitching to the card base then using foam tape added it to a stitched panel and then onto the card base. I purposely offset the focal piece to allow for decoration. I added the butterfly with a gem and then a flourish cut from silver foil. The inside was lined with vanilla cardstock and decorated with more silver flourishes.

We hope you'll play along with us at
DTC86 and If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #157!
