My parents are celebrating their 55th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow ~ 29th December. Last week, while we were talking about it, I surprised Mum by bringing out her wedding dress.... a pretty blue chiffon shirt-waister. I have had to for a few years now... wore it once when I was in my teens.... but couldn't now.... Mum had a waist of around 18 inches when she got married...
Here is the card I made for them
I saw this delightful image over at Mo's Digital Pencil and knew straight away I wanted to use it for their card. I used distress inks to as watercolour to colour it in. The background paper is actually from A Vintage Christmas by Meg's Garden. I made sure I covered the part that said Season's Greetings. I just loved the roses round the edge. I used my new Martha Steward punch( Thanks Mum and Dad, a great Christmas present) and made some red felt roses with a Dienamics rolled roses die. The sentiment was printed on the computer and then cut out with a Spellbinders tag die. I'll be giving this to my parents when they get back from a few days away.
I am entering this into Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything Goes challenge.
I had a great day.... got this card finished, made Mum's birthday card ( her birthday as the 4th January) and one for our niece whose birthday is the 2nd January. Tomorrow, I'll do the housework as the weather is going to be horrid. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were amazing. Christmas night there was an amazing sunset.
Well I'm off to watch Muriel's Wedding on TV. Looks like a fun movie.
Have a great week...
