Saphire Wedding Anniversary


45th anniversary card and for this one I tried to get the distressed crackled look, well where is says you. I did add crackle paint to the peach papers and the ripped edges but not much happened. I also added it to the white paper behind the couple, nothing happened, ended up rubbing chalks into it to highlight it a bit. Added braid round the circle. I punched the flowers and added a cream prima to the centre and glittered. The images are coloured with copics. It looks well enough in real life but its an A4 size card and this is the best photo I could get as a close up. I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Quixotic challenge - the joy of spring - (spring celebration)
2. Cute Card Thursday - mono mania
3. Oh Alice - MAD - mono and distressed
4. Rosie-D's - blessings
5. Dutch Dare Card Challenge - spring card with fabric (used braiding)
