Golden wedding

Hello friends!

I've made a card for my in-law's Golden Wedding Anniversay, wow, that's a loooooong time to be married!!
I admired some beautiful rose cards made by lovely Eileen Godwin using a Stampin' Up embossing folder, and I then found that they made a stamp of the same rose, (called Fifth Avenue Florals).  I stamped the rose onto watercolour paper and embossed it, then coloured with distress inks.  The sentiment is also from Stampin' Up (retired now), and the flourish is from Indigoblu (many thanks Zoe for telling me about that little beauty! :) )

So happy Golden wedding anniversary Ann and John!  Many congratulations and much love xxxxxxx


I'm entering this card in the Make it Monday challenge.
Thank you for visiting my blog, big hugs! xxx
