Platinum Anniversary

Hi everyone,

I was asked to make a card for a Platinum Anniversary - that's "70" years of marriage - can you imagine!

I'm entering the card into two new challenges for me ...

Mishelflo's Monthly Challenge - Celebration (which I found via Cheryl's blog), and
Let's Craft and Create - Special Occasion (which I found via Vicky's blog)


I borrowed the Stampin Up Baroque flourish from my mum (she's been a cardmaker far longer than I have) which I embossed in silver. Small flower punch is EK Success. Adhesive silver glitter paper from Hobbycraft, computer generated sentiments, some seam binding and lots of bling.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Happy Crafting

Suze xx

Suze, it's beautiful. Clean, elegant and perfectly composed. Your embossing is amazing!
70 years? It's hard to comprehend a marriage so long isn't it? How lovely that they still have each other after all this time. I'm sure they will adore your card.
