Ruby Wedding

Good evening, here I am back home from a lovely celebratory weekend. Thanks so much to all those of you who left me so many lovely comments both on here and on Facebook. I especially loved the comments saying I don't even look 40, never mind being old enough to have been married for 40 years, bless you.

This is the card I made my hubby, which he loved. It features a sepia digi of Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea. The background paper is HOTP and the others are Country Companions. You know I love 8 x 8 cards and lots of details so I wanted to add lots of different textures and details to this card. There's ribbon, a charm, a heart doily which I chalked, a Nestie cut heart and heart Sizzix cut corners. I also used the hearts that came out of the corners. The 40 numbers were from some old Poundland stickers which matched the papers perfectly. I also used the MS PATP set.
