Silver Wedding Anniversary

 8 inch square

A request from my neighbour's mother for her eldest daughter and SIL.
I made a card for her husband's 80th ( the flugelhorn) a few weeks back so getting a second request from her I take as a compliment :-)
*The report from my nieghbour is that her Mum loved it! So that's it - mission accomplished :-)

I kept it simple

The bride had a red rose bouquet on the big day and as I only had one small pack of red roses I coloured one of my large Wild Orchid roses with a red copic and spritzed the lot with cosmic shimmer.

Of course I had to make a 'box'/wrapper. It is actually silver mirri card but you wouldn't guess from this pic, lol

Paper - digi design by Loretta Labarca from Daisy
Silver peel-offs!!
Nestie circle and Nellie Sneddon frame
Lace and  pearls
