2nd post today

Hi Everyone.
Well what do you think, it's me again, I was going through Paper Playful and found a challenge that I have not seen before for some reason and thought I have a card for that, so here we are.

I was asked by one of the girls in work to make a card for her and her husband to give to one another on their anniversary that they were spending on a cruise, she wanted it special as it would be the only one she would take.  I came up with this, thankfully, she said that her husband was thrilled and that there were a few compliments when it was on display in their cabin, which I thought was nice of her to tell me.

I made the heart and leaf shape inside the heart from default shapes in Photoshop. I added the Ruby and the 40 on the inside heart and added another heart layer slightly bigger which was embossed and cut out as a shadow to the top layer. I then did another layer slightly bigger again, which, when I added it my Fairycut program (similar to Scuts) I asked the program to add scissor curves which gave the scallop shape on the outside.

I used a heart SVG, (which I now cannot find in my files, so if anyone recognises it I would credit who's it is.  Could be Birds Cards),  for the page layout which was also embossed with Embossalicious Rose Garden, I added a chiffon ribbon and roses from Hobbycraft.

I made a simple box for it as it had to travel in a suitcase, which was lined in red tissue paper. The verses are free downloads.  I have shown the left side of the inside.

The challenge I am entering is
