Golden Anniversary

Good Evening Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a great day, I can not believe that 12 years ago today the world changed forever, my thoughts have been with all them people and families who lost loved ones on that tragic day! 

So today I have for you a card I made for my parent in laws friends, I recently met them and they are such a delightful couple, they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary last week and thought it would be appropriate to make them a card for their anniversary. 

The card I made is using cream linen card stock from the Paper Mill. Gold pearl card and spellbinders.  I embossed the bottom section of the top mat and covered the join with a gold ribbon, I actually ran out of gold ribbon but did have a Christmas gold ribbon which said "marry Christmas" on but when you turned it over you couldn't read the writing - perfect for an emergency! I printed the sentiment of using my computer and changed the colour to "deep gold" and printed on pearl paper with a hint of gold to the pearl. 

I finished it with a gold bow, and gems. 

 The challenges I am entering this in to are:-

The ABC challenge - U for Unlimited 15/9
Crafty Ribbons - Anything with Ribbon
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes   18/09
