A Card for the Sake of it.

Hi girls. Thanks for calling in here. Hopefully you will find something you like or maybe even inspire. Your visits are much appreciated. This is a very special day in the Horne household. William and I are celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. I know it sounds a bit soppy but it has been wonderful to be able to spend that long with my best friend. We are not having anything special and have asked the family not to organise any surprises. I just don't have the stamina, but I'm sure they won't let it pass without something. I think we will just have a quiet day so I may not get round too many blogs so I'll apologise now just in case.
I made this card without any challenges in mind. I have used one of my favourite Sugar Nellies called "Picking Apples" and coloured it using my Copics. The papers are "Somebunny Loves You" by Magnolia Ink and SEI's Juliette "Lady's Boudoir". The flowers were made using the reverse side of the SEI paper and the corners were cut using a Cuttlebug die. Everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and I would love to hear what you think of it, so if you have time please leave me a comment. I love reading what you have to say.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay safe and healthy.
