Camper Love

I made this card for my friend, Claire, who is celebrating her wedding anniver- sary today. She has just started making cards with her daughter but wasn't having a luck of luck with inspiration so she asked me if I would make this card for her husband Paul. I believe the camper van is a logo of Animal brand clothing, which he loves and she has bought him something for their anniversary with the camper van on it, so this was the perfect image to use.

This is a view of the open easel card. I used the happy anniversary stamp that I have had for ages (I think it's Anita's - sorry, having an elderly moment today with my stamps and they're not currently with me as I am editing my blog at my parents). I'm afraid I cannot remember who made the background paper either, but I bought loads of it at Ally Pally last year! Sarn gave me the stamp and I added a black mirri card doily punch border and also mounted the sentiment and the image onto black mirri card. I then added three adhesive gem flowers.

I think the colours work really well, although I wasn't 100% sure when i started putting it all together, I initially thought that maybe I should have coloured the camper van in green, but I'm glad I chose the blue now. I am really pleased with how it turned out and Claire was over the moon! Another job well done xx
