Our Silver Wedding Anniversary

It's been lovely having a long weekend (shame about the weather but it could have been worse). We went to Snape Maltings today (lots of crafty shops & art galleries), I love looking round & I always get inspired :-). Tomorrow is our 25th Wedding Anniversary & here is the card I made for my fab hubby Mark.


This card fits 4 challenges:
Fresh Batch - Sketch (I've just discovered this site & there are some fab challenges)
Cupcake - Numbers
The Pink Elephant - Circles & Scallops
Cute Card Thursday - Mirror, Mirror

I scanned our wedding photo, made it black & white & then laminated it. I used my nesties for the rectangles & circles & cut the numbers out of silver pearl paper. The backing paper is hearts stamped on to white paper, the greeting is Defining Moments from Designer Digitals & the card was finished off with a black ribbon & some gems.

Congratulations on the 25years, DH and I celebrated ours last May. What an awesome milestone in this day and age, not too many couples make it to 25 years. Love your card, great job on combining challenges. Thanks for joining in with us at the CCC this week.

Gorgous monochrome, always works so well. And happy anniversary - I'm guessing the piccy is you and your OH - you could never buy a card like that in the shops which just goes to support our addicition !
