Happy Anniversary

Good morning all!
We've had a great week taking in the atmosphere at the 
Edinburgh Festival & Fringe.
It's back to normal today, back to work & I have a card to share!

This fun little offering was made for my parents anniversary!
I used the 7 Year Itch Decoupage Sheet from La Pashe
Wrinklies At The Movies CD.
My Dad is a big Marilyn Monroe fan, & my Mum loves 
the movies, so it worked well for them!

The base is 8"x8" Kraft cardstock.
The Papers are from the My Minds Eye, Best Of Paisley Paperstack.
I kept the layout fairly simple, adding a couple of bits of ribbon & some lace.
The sentiment was printed on some Kraft then cut out using a 
Spellbinders Callout die.

The stars were punched using an amazing Fiskars Punch that I won!
(It feels like it will punch through anything, like it's butter)
I then embossed them using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
I added a sheer bow to finish it off.
As you can see from the photo, I decorated the inside of the card too!
Thanks for popping by, I hopeyou like it!
