It's our anniversary...

... and here's the card I made for Pav, using one of the gorgeous new Impression Obsession dies from My Crafty Heart.... although I've just realised I've followed the picture on the packet instead of using my own brain and working out that those bits in front of the birds should have been added as wings... Why couldn't I have figured that out before I stuck everything down and took pics lol?!  Oh well, at least I'll know for next time I use it!

Items Used
Impression Obsession Love Birds die - MCH
Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles dies - MCH
Papers - Glitz Design Cashmere Dame - MCH
MeiFlower Pearls - MCH
Sentiment - 'all my love' is Pink Petticoat, 'anniversary' bit added in Word

Ooh I'm all grumpy about messing up the wings now, wish I'd spotted it earlier when I could've fixed it... grrr!!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
