Unicorn Challenge Blog - Special Occasions

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

We had a great day yesterday. Mottisfont is a lovely place to go. They often have art exhibitions in the house and the grounds are gorgeous. In June the roses there are glorious we will be going back for a visit then now we are members. We did a Medieval tour and that was very interesting. The rain kept off too which was brilliant.

Well the first Tuesday of the month sees the start of a new challenge on the Unicorn Challenge blog and this time our theme is Special Occasions.

I was asked by my cousin to make her mum and dad (my aunt and uncle) a card for her to give them for their 65th Wedding Anniversary. I think that makes it  a very special occasion.

The words were generated on the computer. I used my Spellbinder corner dies over some patterned paper. 

I made the flowers with the Exquisite Poppies dies and the foliage with the Olive branch dies. 

I know my cousin liked this card as she sent me a lovely thank you letter. 

Happy Crafting
