Anniversaries are very important to some people… but sometimes a couple can completely forget the correct date, can’t they Richard?! I don’t think the exact date always matters, but what is important is that you still love and honour each other.
A bunch of flowers on a Tuesday because he was thinking about me is every bit as wonderful as the bouquet that arrives on ‘our day’. A spontaneous ‘date night’ when we disappear off to the cinema and have a KFC takeaway afterwards is just as precious to me as a long planned trip to a Michelin starred restaurant in Paris would be.
There are also lots of different anniversaries we can celebrate. Five years at work, 40 years from the date we met a special friend – all these things are important too. This card was made thinking of a wedding anniversary, but perhaps we should remember others as well. Here are some instructions for it.

- White 7” x 7” card blank

- Cut out the pieces of decoupage from the Jane Shasky decoupage collection. Using glue gel layer the pieces up – giving them shape to look more realistic.
- Mat and layer the pink gingham and pink pearl.
- Die cut the Filigree Aperture, Clarissa Lace Edger and Butterfly Flourish out of the pearl card. Place the Aperture die on a slant on the left side of the project, lay the decoupage flowers and Clarissa die on the right side.
- Spray the Butterfly flourish and cover with the fine glitter. Cut another Flourish in lemon pearl and offset onto the white to leave a shadow effect and add the sentiment.
