Ruby wedding anniversary (That's 40 years!!)

Now here's a card you won't have seen from me for a while .... a card without any colouring using promarkers! Most of my creations contain images now so this one is a break from the norm.

I made this card for the soon to be In-laws who are celebrating there 40th Wedding anniversary. The 40th is Ruby so I used lots of red to make the flowers from a die cut. I also used the die cuts to make some leaves from paper from Pink Petticoat wood grain pattern. The background paper is from Mambi and has a lovely subtle sheen to the pattern. I mounted the panel onto red bazzill card and then onto the Kraft card base. I attached a strip of the wide ribbon and some red gem swirls from Hobbycraft.

I cut the red bazzill to make a red flag and I used the number dies to cut out the 4 0. I added the green wood grain paper behind to make them pop out. The letters spelling out YEARS are from Websters pages and the "Congratulations" is a sticker from KaiserCraft.
