A special golden wedding anniversary

This is a card made for a friend from childhood (we went to secondary school together and enjoyed many a day in each other's company) and her husband to celebrate their golden wedding. I was one of their three bridesmaids and it certainly doesn't seem like 50 years ago! I managed to find a photo of the bride and groom that I printed out and put within the green and gold Kanban frame, using a matching frame at the back so that there wouldn't be any odd pieces showing. I swiped the fancy edge of the upper part of the easel with versamark, applying ' pirate gold' embossing powder before heating. I've had the green flowery card for a long while, waiting for the right occasion to use it and the inside of the easel is covered with sentiment paper repeating 'Happy Anniversary'. The white Hobbycraft flowers were daubed here and there with sparkle medium cinnamon and champagne. Glitter strips and lace added to top and bottom.

I chose the green, yellow and gold theme as us bridesmaids were dressed in green and yellow, although a different colour green to that I used here.

Sorry that the photos aren't as bright as the card actually is ... I needed to get it into the post, so had to settle for these photos.
