Happy Anniversary!

We will be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversay on the 12th August so I had to make a card to give to hubby. Luckily for me the card that I had planned on making actually fitted four different challenges :o)

abc-challenge A is for August, what August means to me
Craftycreations challenge #79 Wedding or Anniversary
Ourdailybreaddesigns challenge #23 to use ribbon, a charm plus one other embellishment but no flowers. My other embellishment is the decoupage
charismacardz challenge #31 Teddy bears

A close up of the charm and the decoupage
Another view of the decoupage
I used
White cardstock from The Paper Mill Shop
Red cardstock from DCWV
Backing papers and decoupage from a Forever Friends Romance paperstack which was another magazine freebie! Why do I keep buying stash when I've got all these freebies from the magazines that I buy??????
Ribbon from stash
The charm was in a pack of embellishments that were given to me by a friend and I added the red gem, Paper Cellar, using Anita's 3D gloss
Peeloffs from Craft Creations
