Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, Valentine's - whatever suits

This is an anniversary card for one of my brother's, but could also be used for Christmas or Valentine's, even a Birthday.  The gorgeous flower arrangement paper is part of a magazine advertisement.  One look and I knew it would be great for a card!  I hope you can tell that the white strip across the card is glitter paper.  Glitter is so hard to photograph.  The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.   What a quick and easy card!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments Design Blog - Birthdays
Sweet Stamps Challenge #148 - Glitter
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #202 - Christmas Colors

Inkspirational Challenge #45 - Photo Challenge
