Happy Anniversary

Gosh... September already and apart from December its my busiest month for celebrations.  

This is for my parents and earlier this week I spied the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and used that as my starting point.

I die cut the hearts, masked a strip and splattered it with gold paint.  I've replaced some of the hearts and added a bit of Wink, which in hindsight I really dislike... sigh! 

The focal heart has been heat embossed in gold and the little brads have been coloured with a Sharpie pen.  I faffed about with the sentiment for way too long and after much chuntering to myself I just stamped it in black a few times using a stamping platform.
