Cheeky chimps anniversary love

An image from the Digi Stamp Boutique which I have coloured with my PM's and glittered with stickles.
Which I have to confess has already left the building and I very nearly forgot to photograph it so that I could share it with you. Life is fairly hectic in the Mainland household at the moment.
It is an Anniversary card for my parents who are celebrating their 45th this year, so went for the blue colours cos I found out it is meant to be celebrated with sapphire, of course then I remembered that you can actually get pink and green sapphires as well, but think the blue was the right choice.

I found some pretty little white heart brads to put in the centre of the flowers made from prima and also some from the pound shop from last year.(the gold ones).
The ribbons are velvet and are from my stash box, as is the snippet of lace and the gold thin ribbon bows which I tied and then fixed with two tiny gold brads(dropped one of these and it is officially mia, they are so tiny)
The large piece of organza ribbon with gold edging is from a box/present, so a bit of recycling there too! 

Nearly forgot to mention the giant DCWV brad, these are gorgeous, one of those items you almost don't use cos you love them so much (you all know what I mean!!!)
The papers are freebies, papermania and a couple small snippets of gold from my stash that are so old their make escapes me?

Hello from the new girl in the playground! I'm loving all the blue and yellow together - they are so striking! I know what you mean about being too gorgeous to use. I feel like that with some SU brads at the moment. But then I force myself to remember that they're much nicer on a card than in a container and I can always get some more!
