Anniversary and Not an Image in Sight!

Morning and I have a commissioned anniversary card to show today-I decided against using an image and going with die-cuts,the B.papers are from Craftwork Cards and 7Dots Studio,hearts die-cuts from The Works,butterfly die was a craft mag freebie-I cut four times base in corrugated cardboard and three in papers used,twine/liquid pearls/gems from stash,handmade flowers using Joy die and I made the frame with clay and mould covered in gesso,I inked all edges with distress inks and computer generated sentiment in Dafont-I cut the hearts twice then swapped the inner hearts-finished with a dusting of distress glitter.
