Tuesday and it's HOT!!

Wow!! It's finally summer!!! He sky is bright blue and it's VERY hot! *phew*!
UK doesn't usually DO hot! LOL

Mum asked me, as usual, at the last minute, to make an anniversary card for a lad she knew when he was just a boy.

He'd drop in on Mum while he was visiting his grandmother.

She can't remember his wife's name, so I've had to make it an 'open' card.

It's done as an A5 card (8.5" x 11" folden in half) on white hammered CS.

I've matted and layered the sentiment (printed on the PC) and chalked both it and the main card to soften the edges.

I punched and shaped the hollyhock flowers using two sizes of the same punch.

The stamen is from a star punch and the leaves were punched on a Woodware lever punch.

It's a take on one I did last year in burgundy.

(The colour not the province)! LOL
