50 Golden years

There is a new recipe challenge today over at Crafts 4 Eternity.

The sketch.

Use some marbled paper.

Make your own embellishment

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

'vintage': Just Magnolia.

'something flowery': Stamp Something Challenge.

'distressed, torn, ripped, broken': Raise the Bar. I have inked edged and distressed flowers.

'colour inspiration': The Play Date Cafe.

The card that I made is for my parents 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary. WOW!! What an achievement! That takes some doing.

Papers: Magnolia ~ Something Old, Something New. I inked all the edges with gold ink and machine stitched the papers.

Image: Magnolia ~ Loving Bridal Couple. I coloured the image with copics and added some stickles.

I made some flowers by cutting some linen with my PaperArtsy flower die, cut and layered the pieces, spritzed with glimmer mist and added a pearl brad to the centre.

Thank you for looking.
