Here is a card for my SIL and BIL whose anniversary it is this week. I ought to have posted it earlier, but maybe, just maybe it will get there in time if I stuff enough stamps onto the envelope. I'm still very much into my "clean and simple", and I'm hoping that the style is OK for other challenges.

I managed to shed blood over the making of this card, and I have no idea how. I just suddenly noticed blobs on my desk. Thank goodness it didn't go on the card. Although being a red card, I might have got away with it, haha! Incidentally, this is like the party zit. We have a wedding to go to this weekend (and yes, that's a hint of what the next card will be) and I've been applying night-time hand cream, polishing up the old finger and toe nails, getting my hair cut and paying unusual attention to my eyebrows, you know the ritual. Suddenly I'm giving myself paper cuts, and burns from the oven, and noticing bruises on my legs and arms. Why now, just when I want to be beautiful? Argh! I'd be inserting a banging-head-on-desk icon here except that I don't want to end up with another bruise!

Gorgeous card hun, perfect for the LIM challenge - it is classically elegant, love it. As for you, you'd still be beautiful even with a black eye (no don't get one of those too!) Hugs, Sxx
