Silver Wedding

Good morning all. 

I hope I've finally found my land legs again today, Friday night and yesterday were a little dodgy after spending so much time on water whilst away! 

I managed to make a quick card for hubby last Sunday night, luckily it came together without fighting as it was 10pm when I finished it and as I was due to get up about 4am to get to the airport I was cutting things fine!!

Backing paper was a blog candy win; topper was bought at a local craft shop; heart dies from Spellbinders and the mirri card had been embossed with a hearts folder from Cuttlebug; mesh, ribbon and charm are from my stash. I really intended doing something classy and elegant but it would have been wasted on hubby so went for lots of layers instead.

Challenges entered:
A Creative Romance - dies or punches
Crafts Too Challenge - texture + twist
Crafty Catz - men or boys
Polkadoodles - for the boys
