Anne's Stunning 'Anna Marie' style card
Good Morning Ladies,
I can't tell you how blown away I was when I opened the email that had this card attached, my jaw hit the floor!!!
I guess we all have our favourite styles and designs, but this card just ticked all the boxes for me!
Anne was inspired to make this card by Anna Marie Designs, adding her own finishing touches and techniques.
I can't put my finger on an individual element that places the card up there with my favourites, firstly I think it's the gorgeous delicate blue papers that give the background to the card, giving the effect of the sky, secondly is that gorgeous bird in its adorable, ingeniously designed nest, created with the pretty blue twine and some natural fibres, the way you have arranged those beautiful flowers Anne works so well, it looks as though the bird has just come along and built his nest on the prettiest branch he could find, the whole balance of the floral arrangement is perfect!
The torn, distressed edges give softness to the edges of the card, almost blending the blues with the base card, the pretty little birdhouse finishes the card, Anne put her friends age in the hole of the bird house to personalise the card to its recipient, who I have no doubt will be as blown away as I was and will treasure this card forever! I would have it in a box frame on my craft room wall !!
Thank you so much Anne for allowing me to share your card, you have my fingers itching to get back in my craft room to have a go and on if these cards, thanks again my lovely xxxxx
I hope that you all have a lovely day, however you are spending it,
Love and hugs
