I've done it again!


Last month I showed a card here that I made by re-purposing a previous card that I've made. Well, I have to confess that I've done it again!! And this time it will stay like this because it's a card that was commissioned by a friend for a silver wedding anniversary. I was told that the couple both like cakes and I was asked to try and include a church on the card - I hope this is 'job done'!

So this is the final card that I hope will meet the requirements. The glittery, slightly holographic, church is one that I've had for ages, as is the little 25th square. The little group of cakes is a stamp from a little Docrafts set I've had for ages, but haven't used before, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder. I think I like this final version.

As ever, very difficult to get a photo of a card that has glittery, shiny things on it, heat embossing and the blue strips top and bottom are actually a deep blue mirror card, although you only see a hint of that here.





I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Word art Wednesday 145: something sweet
Timbro scrap mania 99: special occasions
Totally gorjuss 249: special celebration
Sparkle n sprinkle August: anything goes (embossing powder)
Wow! embossing powder August: monochrome
Eclectic paperie ePlay August: embossing
Craft for the craig 7: a craft item you have never used before (the cakes stamp)
Sentimental Sundays 220: monochromatic colours
Crafty catz 244: recycle it
Fairytale stamper 43: anything goes
