Quick and easy anniversary card

Hiya Everyone!

I just wanted to share with you the very quick and easy card I made for the in-laws for their recent wedding anniversary after the hubby only remembered at the last minute. It could easily be adapted to an engagement card though. The image is from bugaboo stamps which I won in an incy wincy challenge which you can find here. I have coloured it in very basically with my promarkers and mounted it onto pink card. I then printed off happy anniversary in century gothic font and stuck it to the side. Apart from adding a few bits of card candy to alternate scallops of my card blank, that's it! Took me about 15 minutes but is very effective! I need to remember I do not need to throw my whole lot of stash at every single card I make and that sometime less is more Lol!
