Distressed?Well wouldn’t you be…

…after 20 years?Of course I’m just kidding.I’m sure he has a lot more to put up with from me than I have from him!

I made this card for my DH for our anniversary which was actually last Wednesday but I’ve not had the chance to take a pic and post here until today!!

I’ve used a sweet Meljen’s Designs freebie (not sure if this one is still available) and coloured it with Promarkers and coated the heart in Glossy Accents.The edges have had a mix of  Antique Linen and Stormy Sky Disress Ink applied.The papers are K & Co Hopscotch the plainer base one has had Peeled Paint Distress Ink sponged around the edges.The coloured card is Core’dinations So Mod in two different shades.I cut some circles with Standard Circles Nestabilities,I like to think of these as masculine flowers,and layered them up with a sentiment I generated on the computer.I fixed them together with a brad.I made the dangly thing using two charms from my stash along with the chain from an old keyring.I tied on some ribbon that I cut from a new top I’d bought recently.They were the hanging loops inside the shoulders.They look so much better on cards,don’t you agree?All edges have had the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser treatment.
