A quick Golden Wedding card..


Hi Ladies..

I just wanted to show you a very quick-to-make Golden Wedding card that I made for some friends of ours..  although the photograph doesn't do the card justice I'm afraid. 

I used the Clearly Besotted Trellis Die..  and stuck it to a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square... then had an idea to use some punched flowers and flourishes...  I thought it needed a couple of butterflies too.  I used gold mirri card for the trellis and flourish (so difficult to see the gold on here without enlarging the photograph), and pearlised white for the flowers and butterflies.  The sentiment is just done on the PC using Vivaldi font, but I have the colour mix so it looks gold when printed.  (Update as I've been asked:  The mix is Red 165, Green 138, and Blue 82).   A tiny bit of gold stickles in the centre of the flowers and butterfly - and it was finished!  Hope you like..  

Hope you all have a lovely weekend - we're off to a Food Festival tomorrow.....  enough said!! hehe!

Big hugs
