Silver Wedding

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  I have had this week off work.  We were away last weekend and got back on Monday.  I have managed to get a bit of crafty time in but other things keep getting in the way.  On the plus side the weather has been better this week. If it keeps up over the weekend then some gardening will have to be done.  Lots of tidying up to do from winter and the weeds are now starting to come through.

The card I am sharing today is one I did for my daughter to give her friend's parents for their silver wedding.


The stamp I have used is a Penny Johnson one from Stampavie.  I just love it and have inked it up several times.  I decided to keep with the monochrome feel and not add any colour to the image.  The background is some foiled acetate.  I kept the embellishments fairly simple: ribbon, feathers, pins and a pearl heart.  

I am pleased to say that my daughter's friend's parents loved the card.  
Thanks for popping by and see you again soon.
