Anniversary Garland

Hi everyone. It's a lovely Sunday boring here in the UK. It's pretty chilly but the sun is shining and the sky is blue. Plus I noticed yesterday that the snowdrops at the end of my garden have started to bloom, and I always  take that as a sign that winter is on it's way out a Spring is on the way. Happy days!!

I am hoping to get down to a bit of crafting today, but before I do, I thought I would post this 'card' made entirely from paper with no stamps at all.

Everything that you see comes from the Polkadoodles Hollypond hill CD which is entirely made up of lots of lovely soft pastel images, based around a family of rabbits.

I used this one to make an anniversary card, and, in the end it turned out to be a bit of a labour of love….you have no idea how long it took to cut out all those flowers and layer them up!
But the end result was well worth it and it is a shame that it was such a dull day when I took the photos, as they are not the best, but hopefully they give you a feel for the dimension.
I would like to enter this card in to a few challenges, so here goes:

Thanks for visiting today.
