Commissioned silver wedding card

A neighbour has asked me to make three cards this week (one was for the 'music man' that I showed a couple of days ago). This one is for a silver wedding anniversary. I found a sketch that I thought would be good to use - and have just realised that it's for Just Christmas and Birthday cards challenge 35, and, of course, d'oh! this is neither Christmas nor Birthday, but I still want to acknowledge that I used this sketch by Simone:

I used an embossed base pearl card overlayed with vellum 'congratulations', with the addition of some 3D flowers etc.

Neither the photo:

nor the scan:

does the card justice - it looks better irl

BF June ATCs

The subject for the June ATC swap on BF is 'squares'. I started making mine, but in the end wasn't happy with them - the paper I used was K & Co Donna Ingemanson 'rough and tumble':



so I made a different lot, this time using Core'dinations black magic card Cuttlebug embossed and sanded with squares cut from American crafts Bavarian paper, with the addition of a square gem here and there:

Inchies: black, white and a hint of red

Now everyone else in the group has got theirs I'll show the inchies I made for the 'black and white with a hint of red' June swap on BF. I used pieces of BG scarlet's letter paper, used a Sharpie black pen to decorate the edges and coloured the centres of the daisies with a red copic (they were originally pink).

The challenge on Small world of inchies and twinchies this week is 'black and white with a touch of red', so I'm linking there.


And this is the lovely selection of inchies I received in the swap:

365 cards day 103: card recipe UPDATE

This card definitely lacked something, so this morning I've added a couple of ribbons - and what a difference it's made:
