C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #22: Anniversary

I know I shouldn't be doing Anniversary Cards when I'm behind with my Birthday Cards but well, shh! ddn't tell anyone, but the prize on the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge is 6 ProMakers! And I have a really big soft spot for ProMakers! Sorry about the picture quality, no real light in my craft room, and it's dark outside!!
This card started off having blue trim, yep! Blue ribbon and little gems to match the blue on the Popcorn Pyrimage Twister (free a few months back from the Crafter's Companion via a crafty magazine) I was actually hunting for some Forever Friends but only had one driving his car, one in a nappy and another playing with a hammer. Not really suitable for an Anniversary Card!
I folded a plan pearl card and then found some pearl paper the same colour to use as the insert and did the same to that. Before I fixed the insert inside the card I used my new Martha Stewart lace punch to make the filly bit along the edge. (I did try to use it on the actual card but it wouldn't cut, so I had to cut a bit off the front of the card because it left 'teeth' marks!) The only trouble was, when I did the same to the insert, the pattern at the back didn't match the front, so I cut it off and stuck it to the left side of the front of the card, and covered the join with the ribbon. (Are you confused? I'm confused too!) I fixed the Popcorn Pyrimage together (Very easy) after edging it with smoke blue ink and punched out the 'hearts' you can see at the front with my Crafts-Tooyou punch. This is when I realised I'd have to change the blue ribbon to pink, because, well, you can't have a blue heart can you? it had to be pink or red and red, in this case, I thought was too harsh. All I did was scribble a bit of pink, with my pink Copic Pen, on the inside of the insert so you can see the pink through the hearts. Then I decided I needed more pink. So I took a ruler and coloured about half an inch of the inside of the back of the pearl card too. So, there's a tip, you can tint your pearl card with ProMakers or Copic Pens, no need to add strips of coloured card, just colour them with your pens instead! (and they don't bleed through pearl card either!)
The lovely flower is from my jar of Daisy Doodles and is fixed on with silicone glue, everything else is from my stash.
