Silver Wedding...

Hello lovely bloggers....

Hope you've all had a good week and have something nice planned for the weekend.

I can't believe that it's only just over 4 weeks to Christmas. I haven't bought anything yet let alone got organised to send any cards, or make them in the first place come to that. I'm sure everything will come together in the end.

Tonight's card is another wedding anniversary card. First it was my parents 50th and now in a couple of weeks it's my sister's 25th. How time certainly doesn't seem that long ago.

I've used LOTV's Wedding Couple again. I really must get some more wedding images, but I do love this one it's just so cute.

The photo's not great it makes the colours look more blue than silver. I've coloured the image with copics and distressed the edges of all the papers with weathered wood.
I've used my new Go Kreate dies that I bought at the Harrogate show recently. Can't wait to try them for a shaped card!
The rolled roses were a success this time. Last time I tried I lost count of how many ended up in the bin - then I gave up in frustration.

The inside has been decorated to match the front using Raspberry Road papers from their Always & Forever and appropriately named Mr & Mrs collections. The card is based on the Deconstructed Sketch #78.
