Floral Anniversary

Usually cards seem to look better IRL than on the screen. This time I think this looks better on the screen, and I am still not so happy with it. If anyone has suggestions I will definitely not be offended.
I had to create my own lace with a Martha Stewart punch - punched on both sides of the cs with little space in between. (Lace is on my shopping list now!).
The image is SU's Simply Said. Sentiment is one of my first e-Bay purchases, with no name. I tried to make the card a bit more masculine for an anniversary with the burgundy and blue. Flowers are be Petaloo, and half pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. Flowers are colored with a shiny gel pen.

Dorothy, this card is beautiful. We are our own worst critics. I love the lace punch and the flowers. Great color combo for a masculine card. Happy that you started blogging, because now I can follow you and see what you create next.
