Today I was asked to create a special 65th Wedding Anniversary card for life long friends of my Mother. Not knowing what 65 years commemorates, apart from being a very long time, I had to do a google to find out that it is “blue sapphire”. This set the colour for the card, and knowing that the couple are well into their 80’s I thought a simple romantic classic style.

I am entering this in the Addicted to Stamps, #236, Anything goes Challenge.
Today I have been inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge, March 2017.
It is such a “HAPPY” image, both in subject and colour, so I decided to use the word happy with Altenew’s Doodle Blooms using the challenge colours of yellow, orange and red.
I first created some watercolour papers using my new Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks and used these behind the happy negative word die cut and also to stamp the flowers. I drew some white gel pen doodles on the flowers. I added some “movement”, reminiscent of the dancers, to the white background with ink splatters and the stitched strip die.
