Wedded Bliss


I am glad to have got to another weekend.....I just have a quick card to share which I made for friends of my mother's who are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary!!  That is pretty amazing - what a lovely milestone to celebrate.  My card is fairly clean and simple:

I die cut lots of numbers with Memory Box dies and adhered them to the card based in a design that I saw Jennifer Mcguire use.  I coloured and glittered the main numbers and covered them with glossy accents to create a focal point.  I gold embossed the sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps on to a vellum banner and finished with a few gold hearts and glittered dots. 
I was pleased with the finished effect.  My Mum couldn't find a 65th wedding anniversary card in the shops and didn't want anything too fussy so I hope this fits the bill!
I will also link up with CASology's current challenge with the cue card - Anniversary.  Quite handy really :)
Thanks for your visit and kind comments.
Hope to see you again soon!
