50 Years of Marriage

This is my second post today. Scroll down for today's sneak peek.
Saturday is a special day for some very dear friends of mine. They will have been married for 50 years and this is the card I made for them. They opened it today so I can share it with you. We had a lovely visit with them this afternoon and I had to take my cards round as Janet wanted some. She is my best customer and bought 17 cards, 2 tags and a doorhanger.

I have used a cute digi from Di's Digis which I won recently, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are from Hobbycraft and I have used DI Wild Honey. The lovely heart border at the bottom is from Crafty Sentiments and the heart was punched with a MS punch. Flowers are from Wild Orchid with Woodware punched leaves.

It's my hubby's Birthday tomorrow so I won't be blogging but I have scheduled a post.
