Silver Wedding Anniversary

Well hello there, I know ...it`s been a long time. Apart from the decorating, whch is now finished, thank goodness, and a few days away in the caravan, my only excuse is that the glorious weather has been far too good to pass up on.
I am back today though with a card. A few weeks ago I was asked by a friend, to make a silver wedding anniversary card for her to give to her husband. Now you know that me and male cards don`t make good buddies but I had to make an effort and this is what I came up with,

The DP is  Pink Petticoat Brocade printed in silver.
I used a Spellbinder Lace Doily Motif die because I didn`t think it was overly feminine.
The Stars were cut out with a X Cut die in silver and white card and the Hearts are made with a Sizzix die.
I added a heart shaped charm to the finished die cuts. The sentiment is PC generated and cut out with a nestie square die and raised with foam pads.
I got some good feedback so I think both were pleased with it :)

Right, still trying to get back into the swing of things and hopefully won`t leave it so long before the next post.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
