Happy 25th Anniversary

Hey, I made this card for mum and dad for their 25th Wedding Anniversary last year but have only just got round to blogging it...Belated congratulations you two :)
I used the digi image called 'Valentines Night' from the Crafts and Me website and coloured it using my promarkers. I added gold, silver and green glitter to the fairies wings to make them sparkle.
I then cut the image into a rectangle and rounded the two right hand corners. I punched the left hand egde with a flower border punch and then edged the image with green ink. I then backed the image with silver holographic card.

I edged my backing card with dark green ink and then backed it with dark green card followed by green fairy paper. I chose a further fairy patterned paper and backed this with silver paper. I cut these to different sizes and attached them in the top right hand corner of the paper.
I raised the letters of 'Happy Anniversary' across the top and down the side of the image at different angles. I coloured green the felt numbers '25' and stuck these onto green card and backed this with silver card; I attached this to the bottom left corner of the image. I added four green flowers to the card, which I inked with green and silver for effect. I added two silver wired flowers to the groups of flowers. To finish, I used round and heart shaped silver gems to the top corner and boarder of the image.
