Happy Wedding Anniversary. 9/25 motif challenge

Today is our 11th Wedding Anniversary,   this is the card I have given Vernon.  It was actually a Friday that we got married and tonight we are going out for a meal for a change.
I have done something a bit different,  not the usual colour but I thought something different.  The tatted heart in the middle is Sandra's Dainty Heart, tatted in white  Lizbeth thread No 20  which I attached to the card.   I use a piece of backing paper from a pad I was given some time ago and did a parchment front with a simple grid pattern attached to the card with brads.   The ribbon was a free gift from Crafts Beautiful  Magazine sometime ago and it marched the paper perfectly.   I finished the card off with gold peel offs.
This proves you can use tatting and parchment together.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and until we meet again take care


  1. Morning Margaret. This is beautiful. Lovely to see the result of our chat about the two disciplines together. When I am back to crafting we will have to take it further perhaps. It really does look good with the parchment.
