Sapphire Wedding Anniversary

Hello again fellow crafters.

My friend Carolyn, asked me to make a card for her parents 45th Sapphire Wedding Anniversary so I put my thinking cap on and, although it doesn't have any Sapphire on it, I hope it will suffice? I tried it with a navy blue background but it just looked odd, so I decided to keep the layout sketch really simple and go for Sepia and Cream with a splash of Green.

Okay, so here's what I did:  Carolyn gave me a photograph of her parents that I scanned and edited to change the colour to Sepia. I then ran the image through my Big Shot with my large scalloped nestabilities. I printed the text directly onto the cardstock. I added some black ribbon (from my stash) to the centre and then mounted the photograph together with the flowers and the flourishes. To finish the card off, I added 1mm cream pearls to each of the scallops (the ones that were visible anyway).

The verse inside the card, reads as follows:

A marriage made in heaven, 
is beautiful and rare.
And brings a life of happiness, 

just like the one you share.
Your trust in one another,

is a very precious thing.
And you deserve a lovely day, 

for all the joy you bring.

Happy anniversary to you both
Mum and Dad

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my cards enough to keep visiting.
Hugs, Fae xxx
