Back with an Anniversary card!

Hello all,
goodness, I can't believe that week has passed by so quickly-I hope everyone is well!
I have had a week away, first visiting family in Newcastle and then a four day visit to Whitby and Scarborough. Unfortunately the weather was almost watching for us going away and it was like a switch being thrown from gorgeous hot and sunny weather to complete and utter solid rain for the whole time we were away!! It really did put a downer on the break-it's hard to keep smiling when you're constantly soaked and freezing.  I really did feel sorry for all the families away with small children, it's just not fair when you look forward to your holiday-there's just nothing like building sandcastles on the beach and jumping the waves (and that's just me, lol!!)
Anyway, if you've been away I hope you managed to find some sunshine.
I have tried to keep up with your lovely creations each day but there was limited internet in the first B&B and none at all in the second so it was snatched minutes whenever we ate anywhere with free wifi I'm afraid so I wasn't able to comment at all.
So, onto my card for today, I had to make a card for my Mum and Dad's anniversary which is this week and couldn't think what image to use, then I remembered this cutie from a set which came recently with Quick Cards. The set was called Moonbeam Meadow and I coloured it with Promarkers and cut it out with a Nellie Snellen oval die. The backing paper is from Michele R and I used a Martha Stewart doily punch for the strip at the bottom. I made a fancy corner with a die from Creativity magazine and punched two hearts from card embossed with a dotty folder, both were coloured with Promarkers. The flowers are punched out and have a little green pearl in the middle from The Works. The sentiment was one my dad made me on the computer:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I love Promarkers #280 -3 or more layers
