Happy Anniversary Heath & Lois!

I have had this card on my list of things to do for a very long time.  Our eldest son and his wonderful wife celebrate their 5th anniversary today and I could not think of a better card for them.  For those who want a tutorial, it can be found on Splitcoast.  It was not as hard to make as I thought it would be.  The designing is what took me so long (about 3 hours) but now that I know what I am doing they should go a lot faster next time.

I sponged all of the edges...;-)

The flowers were punched, sponged and edges curled.  They were adhered with glue dots to the card.  I used the small side of  crop-a-dile to get the center of the flower and adhered it with the Mono-adhesive and a toothpick to put it just where I wanted it.  The Amour is popped up on Dimensionals.

I slit the edges of the center, bottom panel with my craft knife and slid the ribbon around to tie.  I made sure it stayed where I wanted it to be with a few glue dots.

The butterfly is cut out twice.  The bottom one is glued flat while the top one is folded with some more glue dots ran down the center

The Happy Anniversary just barely fit...I am so glad that it did!  The bottom panel was left blank so that we could sign the card.
