A Proud Day

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  Been a bit cloudy and dull here today but not a bad thing as I have been hiding in my craft room getting on with a wedding order.  

My card for today is one I did for my sister to give to her hubby for his birthday on Friday.

I started off by embossing a piece of mirror card with a metal effect stencil from That Special Touch.  This was then mounted onto some red card.  I cut a heart shape out of red glitter card and added a silver heart embellishment that I had in my stash.  The sentiment was stamped and mounted onto red card and  I added some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons that had the perfect wording on it.  A couple of roses and a happy birthday sentiment from Craftwork Cards finished the card.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Birthday
Here Come The Boys - Anything goes
The Squirrel and The Fox - Use something spooled (ribbon)
Kaboodle Doodles - Embossed
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes birthday option
Stamp N Doodle - It's a boy thing
The Paper Shelter - Clean and simple
Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
Crafty Ribbons - CAS and ribbon
A Creative Romance - No designer papers

Now I promised you some pictures from my daughters graduation so here you go.

My beautiful and talented daughter.

 Proud parents and sister.

 My mother-in-law and my mum with their granddaughter.

My two lovely daughters, the best of friends.
It was a truly special day and the weather was glorious.  
Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.
