Golden Wedding Anniversary

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

A commission from my neighbour's mother for her sister and brother in law.

I'm off on holiday next week for two weeks and have tons to do before I go - yanno, like I***ing and H****work, uggg, as well as some cards, plus hospital appts with hubby.

I love this image and use it a lot for anniversary cards and this sure is a special one.







Paper is one of  Eva Kipler's designs. I fussy cut around the ornate frame, added the image and adhered it to another piece of DP matted on to gold mirri. The mat is fixed with one layer of foam tape and the image/frame with two layers to give a nice bit of dimension.


The gorgeous venise lace was a little extra in my parcel from Linda, Funky Junky's Zibbet shop - thank you Linda :)
I made a scroll with all the details and added flowers from WOC. These I painted with cheapo gold paint and Winsor & Newton iridescent medium
