Scrapology - August Card Challenge

Last week the August Card Challenge went live on Scrapology.  Design team member Sandra challenges everyone to create a card this month with a 'Milestones' theme - a special birthday, anniversary, etc. 

The design team usually know several months in advance what the monthly challenges are so for this months challenge I was able to make an Emerald Wedding Anniversary card for my parents anniversary in June,.

I decided to only just the colours white and emerald green on my card and found some gorgeous green glittery card from Dovecraft and a scrap of green ribbon in my ribbon box. 

From white card I die cut a beautifully intricate tree shape on the Craft Robo and made this sparkly with white ultra fine glitter. The tree was stuck onto a piece of white card which I had already printed my greeting onto. I them punched hearts from the green glitter card to decorate the tree and glued a ribbon bow on the tree trunk. The whole thing was then matted on more green glitter card then onto a white card blank.

I was pleased with the simplicity of the card and my Mum & Dad really liked it too.

Please pop on over to Scrapology to see the rest of the teams cards and for full details of the challenge.
