Simple Anniversary Card

Hi there, it's a lovely day here in sunny Norfolk. I can't believe it's the 1st October, it's like July out there! It's Simon's Mum and Dad's Anniversary today. This is the card I made for them. They are not into the lovey-dovey, slushy style, so I did this simple, chic card. Definitely my style! They are having a little get together later on, so hope they like the card. Off now to have a coffee and maybe a bit of cake, yummy yum.

What you need to make this card:

1 x 14.5cm square card blank (with fold at the top, trim 3cm from one side), Basic Grey 'Hopscotch' papers, Paper Artsy Grunge Flower dies,Tim Holtz Scallop On The Edge die, American Crafts Dear Lizzy 'Whistle' stamps,1" circle punch, dark brown card,  brown ink, metal button, white cord, pale yellow ribbon
Layer top two thirds of card with Hopscotch paper. Cut out a wide strip of brown card, edge with the scallop die and lightly distress. Fix under the paper punch a circle and hand cut 3 leaves in contrasting papers. Distress lightly, assemble and stitch a button in the centre. Arrange and attach to the left of the card, above the ribbon. Finish with the stamped sentiment in brown on the bottom right of the card.
