Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - June 2015 - Anything goes or the option of LAVENDER AND LACE

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for June 2015 is "anything goes with the option of lavender and lace".

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "lavender and lace") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.

We also take email entries, Facebook entries and if you fancy joining us on the team for a month please put GDT after your name in the linky.

This month we are extra lucky as we have two sponsors.
The first sponsor is Crafty Ribbons and the lucky winner will get a £10 voucher to spend in the Crafty Ribbons Store.
Our second sponsor is Crafty Sentiments Designs and the lucky will get to pick 3 images of their choice from the Crafty Sentiments Designs Store.
I decided to make an anniversary card for a male.  It is for my husband for next month as it will be our 24th wedding anniversary.  It just shows that lavender and lace can be male orientated.  My husband loves his garden and loves growing vegetables as well as flowers.

I decided to use a gorgeous image from the Joanna Sheen Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CD and printed off two sheets of the toppers so I could decoupage and the matching backing paper.

The "with love" embossed frame and stamp was a freebie with a magazine and I have brushed over the embossing with some purple pearlescent chalks for some sparkle.

I have finished the card off with some lace, sentiment off the topper sheet, organza ribbon bow and a heart shaped button.
