An Anniversary card from me today

I have made this card for my Dad and Step Mums 21st Wedding Anniversary which is today. Happy Anniversary to you both! my Step Mum is also celebrating her birthday today. Happy Birthday Brenda!

I have used a XXL Square frames Frilly #5 Go Kreate die for the card base and attached some gingham paper cut using the next die size down before scoring and cutting to create the stepper card.

The adorable image is from a Lili of the valley design sheet which I have mat and layered onto some blue card cut using the largest Spellbinders scalloped square die and then adding some silver peel offs into each scallop. The sentiment is also a Lili of the valley rubber stamp.

I have cut the green flourishes with my new Cheery Lynn dies and added some butterflies cut using Cheery Lynns butterfly dies and then added a Petaloo flora doodles flower in the centre.
