Diamond Wedding Anniversary

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make two or three Diamond Wedding Anniversary cards (wow! 60 years of marriage), so this is one that I made. I remembered that a few years ago I bought some pearlisted card with large embossed diamonds, so that seemed just right for the background. The organza ribbon with gems is from Hobby Craft. The sentiments and the glittered white die cut of the wedding couple have been in my stash for ages. So this was an opportunity to bring some older supplies into play.

I actually added '60' in silver to the right hand corner, but had already taken the photo before that and the card has now gone, so too late to update.

This is for:
