Friends Anniversary

******************

I hope this has arrived in Maine, USA. 
Barbara and I have been friends since college - an amazing 54 years!! 
We haven't seen each other for a few years now but still keep in touch. She is married to a lovely man, Doug, who was a master sergeant in the US Air Force. 
It was 39 years ago that we had the pleasure of attending their wedding at RAF Chicksands, Bedfordshire.

~~~ Congratulations Barbara and Doug ~~~

The main BP (and the flower) from Papermania Rose Garden, again - I'm getting a lot of mileage from this pad :)
The other is a freebie in this months craft mag, a lovely match. Border cut with MS deep punch. Went round all the edges with french blue chalk pad.





I cut out a heart from corrugated card, spread some white acrylic paint on, then some DI and finally painted over with iridescent medium.





The flower is made with TH tattered floral garland die from Linda, Funky Junkie's Etsy shop. The pearl in the centre and the one on the bottom of the tag are made with petal pink liquid pearls - I sprinkled some sparkly dust on while they were still wet.
