An anniversary card for Ian and Christine

Here is a card I have made for my hubby's Aunt and Uncles 43rd Wedding Anniversary, which is this Wednesday. I hope they like it.

I have followed the sketch over at The Pixie Cottage. The image is a digistamp from Karens Doodles which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I have punched the corners with a heart punch and then mated onto red card. I then used a corner rounder on the corners of the red card.
I have printed off three red backing papers from a Cuddly Buddly Patchwork download and cut them into squares. I have then stuck three squares together in each line of three and stamped some stitching around the edges. I have added some heart velvet ribbon on top of the patchwork and then stuck the image and backing card on top using 3d foam tape. I have added a tiny red organza ribbon on the left hand side and added three paper flowers with red pearls in the centre on the top right hand corner. I have also added a couple of red punched out swirls to the top corners of the image.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
