Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - Lovely Layout

Welcome to this month's Stampin' Creative Blog hop and a warm welcome if you've hopped over from the lovely Louise's blog were you'll have already been spoilt to some fantastic inspiration already.

This month's hop revolves around a Layout challenge and a layout that excited me the moment I saw it.

My regular followers will already know that this year I've a wealth of milestone occasions to celebrate with friends and family and so I chose to use one of the 25th Wedding Anniversary cards as the theme for this layout.

Quite a simple little card really, with nominal stamping. I layered some vellum over the whisper white layer, to help soften the look.

Wanting to give a little gift to this couple, I made a coordinating gift tag from vellum, that I filled with hearts and the word 'enjoy'.

Hopefully you can just see here, how I added a Wink of Stella to the scattered hearts on the card, to add a subtle shimmer. 

 This layout was right up my street, with the scattering of embellishments. I loved working to this and I hope you've enjoyed seeing my creation. 

Pip will I'm sure delight you further with her offering. She herself has a 25th Wedding Anniversary to celebrate this year … but don't worry, this card wasn't for her, so I've not spoilt any surprise. 

Enjoy the rest of the hop and the rest of the Easter weekend.
