It's time for another challenge over at The Paper Funday.
Our challenges are alway Anything Goes with an optional twist.
The twist this time is 'Friendship'
We are very fortunate to have 2 sponsors for each challenge this year which means we get to choose which artist we would like to work with. This is really great as it gives us double the choice. We are very lucky with the amazing sponsors that are lined up this year, many of which are old favourites and some that are new to me.
We are sponsored this month by Star Stampz and Fred She Said both of which I have created with before.
For this challenge I chose to work with this sweet image K-I-S-S-I-N-G. as I thought it would be lovely for an anniversary card for my hubby. We have been together for 33 years and although we didn't get married until nearly 13 years later we still celebrate the anniversary of us becoming a couple. Unfortunately things have been a little strained between us recently as my hubby is going through a difficult patch but we will work through it and I am sure it is only a temporary blip. Ultimately he is my best friend which also fits in with the challenge theme.
I coloured this image with Promarkers and a very fine brown liner pen to add bark detail onto the tree. As I am a sorry so and so I have lots of heart papers and shapes so pulled together my paper and ribbon and used black cardstock to add layers underneath the image.
The sentiment is an old blog freebie from Sentiments 4 You which has unfortunately retired. I added some colour to the hearts and used a circle die to cut a black mat. This has then been added to the card with foam pads for dimension.
As a final touch I dragged out some peel off stickers (remember those?) which have a red heart outline and gold in the centre.
I hope you will join myself and our fabulous Team over at
