Golden Wedding

A5 size

We are invited to the Golden Wedding celebration of a chap who hubby used to work with. It will be a nice change to see them at this special occasion as usually we only see them at funerals
So, on Saturday night it's on with the slap and the glad rags. I guess hubby will be busy recalling old times and I'm sure I'll find someone to chat with.

I spent most of yesterday evening making this card. Gone over the top a bit with the flowers lol. The one in the middle is a Syntego flower bought from Joanna Sheen some time ago.

The sentiment on the front is gold embossed on pearly card and that and the BP are edged with gold pen. The BP is Laura Ashley (another piece from my Christmas pressie) and the main cardstock is a a nice soft gold. Added a bit of bling and organza ribbon.

This is the box and it took me nearly as long to make this as it did the card.
I kept getting the measurements wrong and it took me 3 goes to get the base right.
Never mind I got there in the end. I kept it simple because of the acetate aperture.

A close up of the bouquet!

Thank you for dropping by today, Your comments are really appreciated
Wishing you all a
Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2009
