A is for Anniversary

A little while ago over on the Jellypark Team twitter account, I did an alphabet product list, advertising digi's for each letter of the alphabet. I really enjoyed doing it, so I have decided to make up for my total lack of blogging recently by challenging myself to do alphabet blog posts.
Today's offering is A for Anniversary.
It was our 15 year wedding anniversary yesterday, I had a lovely day with no cooking, we went out for lunch on our own and then took the children out for dinner, both meals were yummy and I felt very spoilt.
I made a card for my hubby using this super cute love bird digital stamp from Jellypark. When I printed the image out I wasn't sure of a colour scheme so I googled love birds and oh my goodness they are the sweetest, prettiest little feathered friends ever.

I used my safmat for the sentiment, I've had it for ages but forgot all about it, it worked perfectly to get some writing on my background paper. I used some washi tape and coloured it with distress inks to match the paper. The birds are coloured with promarkers and then glossed with glossy accents. I then used my distressing inks to colour the background of the digi.
That's it for today I will be back very soon with B is for ??????
p.s. the current challenge over at the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog is "one for the kids" and it's proving to be really popular, I'm just heading over there to do some more commenting on the entries:o)
