Anniversary Card for Edward

Hi all, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and not too many headaches lol!

Welcome to our Inky Impressions Challenge 4 which is 'Ribbons and Pearls' and today I have used Nicole's new winter release 'Bundled Up Lili' available here isn't she just cute!  Now just take 20 years off me and this could be a younger me lol!  (got to confess I did have a purple jumper and orange scarf, still got purple jumpers lol) Now this Anniversary card is a little late we celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary on 27th December.  

Now Santa brought me some Spellbinders Nestabilities and this is the Big Scalloped Ovals (I just need the Small Scalloped Ovals now lol).  MS heart punch to the base at the front and back of the card.  Distressed the edges of the paper.  Used the hearts from the punched border around the the card.

This is a close up to show the sparkle from The Dazzling Glimmermist and Special effects used

A closer look at the lovely sentiment and cute charms
