Hello everyone..

I have an Anniversary card to share with a box, and it is all about the leafy background, which was a total accident in the first place, but a happy one..then I made this whole sheet of leaves using my die cuts, the negative, and sprays on water colour paper..


I use my Kaiser sprays for this as they have that lovely sheen to them..

These are the leaves I sprayed over....

and they leave this print..pretty..

I die cut out this frame....

And these ovals, 2 ovals makes a frame and a center..

Then used the largest oval for my card center..

I uses the small one on the front of the box but covered it up with the sentiment, but it is there..

I used some other leaves that I had already cut out together with my sprayed ones and they worked really well together..

The card and box together..

I love the little foam roses from my stash, you will be seeing more of them them, they sit so well..

Die cut out each letter for the names, a new die set from Kaiser, upper and lower case..

A side view of the card..

So there we go...thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful weekend which is getting closer, mine started at 6.00am this morning when Holly decided she wanted in the bed and was not taking NO for an answer..
