Along with my Christmas preparations, I have been working on a card commission. I was asked to make a Diamond Wedding Anniversary card. One of the ladies that teaches my son his bowls has her mother and father celebrating their Diamond Wedding on boxing day. Sixty Years, now that is a long time....not many can boast that, thought I was doing well at 28 years LOL.
So this is what I created. I know I am safe to post pictures here, as they don't read my blog.
I decided to use the old faithful stampset, A Rose is a Rose. I love this set, you can do so much with it. The first photo doesn't show it very well, but the roses are all glittered with Dazzling Diamonds. Well it is a Diamond Wedding Anniversary LOL. The sentiments where printed on my computer using a colour the shade of Regal Rose to match the roses.
Also to make the card even more special, I made a box to match.
and here is the card presented in the box.
This is the first card commission I have done, and I have to admit, I was worried that the lady wouldn't like it. What you like isn't always someone elses taste if you know what I mean. But she was thrilled and commented that her Mum & Dad where having a party and the colour theme was pink....
Anyway, off to take some more pain killers. Back soon.... Bye
