Happy Anniversary

Managed to make it to the end of another working week and looking forward to the weekend.  Got nothing planned so will hopefully get some crafting done.  We are going to my Sisters next weekend so need to get caught up on some DT stuff before then.

When my youngest daughter was home from uni last weekend she casually asked me on Saturday morning if I could make a 25th wedding anniversary card for her friend to give her parents.  Not wanting to disappoint I said of course.  Next thing she asked me to rustle one up for her as well.  Talk about last minute lol.

Anyway, here is what I came up with for her friend.  (I will share the one I made for Gayle another evening)


No image this time but lots of die cuts and silver and white card.  I used a frame die and butterfly die from Marianne.  The flower die is the delicate aster from Spellbinders.  Added some punched butterflies, ribbon and pearls.  I also used peel offs (not something I normally use) around the outside of the card.  I have loads of peel offs and really must start using some of them.  

I really enjoyed making this one as it is quite different from what I normally do.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think.  Hope you all have a fab weekend, whatever you are doing.

Oh Mags, this is so gorgeous and sophisticated and lovely! What a beautiful design!

My daughter asks for cards at short notice, too, and the ones I have in stock are never quite right, so it has to be a new one! Bless them, they keep us on our toes!

Also, I'm so sorry I missed your birthday, I hope the Ally Pally tickets will serve as an apology!!

Take care!

love Mags B xx
