Crafting for all Seasons #74 "Dies and Punches"

Good afternoon all.

Well I don't know what I did to deserve it but I came home from the funeral on Friday with a flu bug...I'm only just beginning to feel human again!

A little later than promised, here is my card for our current challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Dies and Punches". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by The Paper Shelter who gave the DT images to work with.

Last week my Aunt and Uncle were lucky enough to celebrate their Diamond Wedding Anniversary, this is the card I made them.

I've used Vintage Floral Frame, pre coloured  and decoupaged, which I bought recently with a GC I'd won. Backing paper is from the Vintage Flower for You paper pack which I also bought with my GC. Heart die is from Tattered Lace, butterfly from Marianne Designs, wording is computer generated and gems are from my stash.

Inside and showing all the layers.
