CHALLENGE 32 AT SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS - ANNIVERSARY!

Hi peeps -hope you are all having a fab. weekend - we celebrated my FIL's 100th Birthday yesterday - YES - 100 - how amazing is that! (More about that later)!! 
****
Onto this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge where the theme is "Anniversary" - pop over for full details, and grab some fab. freeby sentiments too! Look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations this week!
****
I would like to enter my card into the challenge at Mo's Digital Challenges - Glitz and Glimmer (I think it just about fits the bill)! and Moving Along With The Times - "For Someone Special".
My Card Recipe:- I have used a beautiful Mo Manning image, coloured with Copics, and I decided to go for a "Joy Fold" card design ("Duet" card seems more suitable - wonder why it's called "Joy")? I love this card shape, but it's not very easy to photograph.  The base card is from SU.   Grey and white swirls paper from Rayher - Classic Collection.
Border punch - MS Doily Lace. 
Sentiment -  computer generated, cut out with a SU punch.
The inside sentiment (photo.below) which has been die-cut with a Nestie oval, is from the talented Ann Vento, (Raindrop Echo Designs), and fits in with the theme perfectly.
Edges inked with Tattered Rose DI.

Love and good wishes to everyone who visits ~
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
