50 Years of Love!

Today my card is for a friend of my Mum, Mary, who is soon to be celebrating her Golden Wedding Anniversary-that is 50 years!! I will be 89 by the time Callum and I are celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary-lets hope we are both still here to enjoy it!!

It seemed to be the 'right' time to be making an Anniversary card as here on London we are all preparing for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. So in a way I am flying the flag today!

I have been struggling with this card as I do love my CAS cards but knew that Mary would probably like a bit more of a fancy card. So a challenge this was!

I have been looking through sketches for a few days now. Finally I saw one today on Try Stamping on Tuesday  and ideas popped into my head. I hunted through my stash, found a few golden heart charms, some golden twine and gorgeous cream ribbon. I die cut a golden heart and a smaller heart from golden glitter paper-layered them plus a few extra bits and bobs to fancy it up. I am happy with it and really I think it is not too far from my CAS style just with a few twists for Mary!!

I will also enter this into the 'Anniversary' challenge on Anything Challenge and the 'die cut' challenge on House of Gilli
