Golden Wedding Anniversary

The Inspirational Sketches challenge this week is this sketch:

I was asked to make a special Golden Wedding Anniversary card and decided to use the sketch (basically I was struggling what to do!) So two Anniversary cards in a week can't be bad!

The backing paper is Papermania 6 x 6 Simply Elegant which I have slightly trimmed down to size, rounded the corners and lightly inked. The two ribbons are from my stash (one was already handily tied!)
The numbers have been cut from gold card and then gone through the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and added onto two nestie cut shapes. The wording on the lighter brown nestie shape has been cut with my Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set and the little heart is from my stash.

I made the two wire and bead hearts and purposely kept them a little random and not too heart shaped.

  • Backing papers: Papermania - 6 x 6 Simply Elegant
  • Dies: Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet set, D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and Spellbinders Nestabilities
  • Ribbon: From my stash
  • Beads & Wire: From my stash
