Anniversary card




I made this card for my friend and her husband for their Anniversary. I always struggle with Wedding and Anniversary cards so I was pleased that it worked out OK. The hardest bit on this card was getting the string of pearls glued to the ribbon. It was a nightmare. I cut the the lady's head silhouette (Marianne die (LR0140) from some gorgeous gold paper I found in my stash and added a pearl and a feather. It does not show very well in the photograph but works really well with the gold embossed velum.
I have entered this card in the challenges listed below.

Hi Shirley,
I got a chuckle out of hearing the pearl string gave you fits. At least it's not just me lol. You did a fantastic job bringing focus to your ribbon and we're so glad you joined us at Top Tip Tuesday for the Focus on the Ribbon challenge.

Hugs,
Lisa
