Card for hubby and some fab news!

Morning all,

Before I get to my card, I have some exciting news to share... I have been offered a place on the brand new Crafters' Palette design team! I'm really excited to be a part of this fab team, and there's already a couple of gorgeous projects up on the blog (that and a bio with my mug... sorry about that! ;-) )

Now then, onto card for the day.

It was hubs and mine anniversary recently, and I naturally made him a card. (I kid you not, this is our entire celebration. I make him a card, he says "thank you, happy anniversary" and continues reading the paper, lol!)

I went the grungy route for this one, as hubby isn't fond of cute and pretty... Shock! hehe...

Lots of Distress inks, lots of stencils, stamps and some spritzing with a picket fence distress marker. Twine and a rather obvious sentiment for the occasion finish it off.

I also left the inside black, while normally if I'm using a non-wite base I will decorate the inside and have a panel to write on. Instead I wrote my message in white, which I think worked well on this occasion.

Hope you're all having a lovely week!
