Golden Wedding Celebrations

Hi everyone, I thought I'd share a card I made before Christmas for a friend to give to her in-laws.

I've used mainly Forever Friends products for this, the papers coming from a Black and Gold kit which I got for Christmas 2011. The card itself is 8x8. The image has been coloured with copics. Here are some close-ups...

 The 50 peeloff is actually attached to an acetate loveheart, cut using a Spellbinder, but you can't really see in the picture. The heart is attached to a pin which has been stuck in amongst the flowers. I also added gold and pearl wires.

This has to be one of my favourite Forever Friends stamps. I used a Spellbinder die to shape the image.

I also decorated the inside of the card adding two lovehearts. One matches the paper from the front of the card, the other is white to write on.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Whimsical designs - anything goes 
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Teddy bears 
Bearly Mine - anything goes 
Top Tip Tuesday - Fur or Feathers 
Make it Monday 
Forever Friends - Use your favourite embellishment (flowers) 

Thanks for looking. I hope you're all staying safe in this awful weather. I'm so glad I got my new boiler now! Have fun crafting and I hope to see you again very soon.
