Anniversary Card

Yes it's also that time of year for my self and Paul
1 October marks the day... the day we met... awww
So I have sneakily made a card... 
It is at this moment in time hidden
but I took some pics so I could show..
I can quiet easily say that Paul will not look at my blog...
He doesn't show much interest.. apart from the odd comment
"you spend hours blog hopping..
or who you commenting on now!!"
kind of thing
The card
I have followed the sketch for 
The Cutie Pie challenge blog
but I have used am image from
Crafters companion..I think it is Daisy and Dandelion !!
I have just been to check but can not find it in my history
Anyway on my card I wanted Daisies but I don't have any (rolls eyes)
Make my own time.. I tried cutting out the petals but couldn't get them small enough and the same size
so out came my spellbinders borderabilites
Fleur De Lis
I had to put it through my machine a few times as I needed a lot of petals
here they are

I used a basic yellow flower as a base to stick the petals onto
took some time I can tell you

here is the die I used, I used the top pointy bit for the petals
and you can see the flowers finished.
In the centre of each I used one of my new gems.
then all I had to do was pop the card together..
The image and the papers are all from the same download
I added the sentiment from a different set 
it says
"I love hanging around with you"
I then just added some green gems to two corners
here is the decoupage close up, isn't it sweet
I am entering this card into
