Happy Anniversary

I called in sick yesterday as I was having a stomach flu. I am feeling a bit better today. Fortunately it's my day off so I can take it easy.

Last week I was asked by a friend to make a card for her best friend's 30th wedding anniversary. I went for grey with a touch of pink and added a gorgeous soft pink pearl flourish from Zva Creative.

Have you already finished all your Christmas cards? I have to finish two custom card orders this week, and then I have a few Christmas cards to make that I can send to friends.

Have a nice day!


  1. Gorgeous card Ingrid. I love the colours and the subtleness of the swirl and ribbon. I made an anniversary card too, but it looks nothing like that... saying that... I did use the Damask Designs stamps as well. xox

  2. Wow! This card is stunning!
    I have made a few Christmas cards. A huge pack for a custom order then a few that I am sending out to friends and family. Working on my Christmas list otherwise I will leave people out and be sorry about it.

  3. Mooie kaart zo met dat grijs en zachtrose.
    Ik ben helemaal klaar met de kerstkaarten maar maak er nog steeds. Voorraad voor volgend jaar. Heb je nooit geen stress. Doe ik al jaren zo.

  4. That 30 behind the sentiment is a great idea. Pearls, seam binding and damask say anniversary for sure!; pretty pretty!!

  5. Wauw, deze vind ik echt super mooi!

  6. Wauw, dit is elegantie ten top...wat een prachtig kaartje! Ik ben ook al aardig op weg met mijn kerstkaarten, maar ik ga maar gewoon door...dan kan ik ze altijd nog voor volgend jaar gebruiken, hihi.

  7. Mooie kaart Ingrid!
    En zo'n griepje is wel héél low carb! ;-p

  8. Ingrid, you always create the most elegant cards and this is no exception. Simply gorgeous! :)

  9. Wow, what a STUNNING card!!! Hope you continue to feel better :)
