Another beautiful day in October

It's been another beautiful day today although it has got a bit chilly now. This afternoon I have been making cards.

I had a message from an old friend the other day, on that I had not seen in a very long time and she mentioned that it was her 25th wedding anniversary this year.. Well to say that my flabber was gasted is an understatement. I know time goes quickly but i was bridesmaid at her wedding along with her two daughters.

It was her second marriage and she got married in pink and our bridesmaid dresses were a pale green, quite heavy and done in the style of 1920's, drop waisted, beautiful dress. I must see if I can dig out a photo.

Anyway thought I had better get a card done for her and Barry - her husband and here is what I came up with.
I used a square card, silver mirri card, corners inverted cut and stuck to the card blank. Ribbon tied round the the base and a separate bow made (I'm useless at making bows but this one was ok). The image is from an embossing folder ran under the cuttlebug and then layered onto some more mirri card and white card. Gems from my stash were used to finish it off. The wording and number 25 were peel offs.

Thanks for reading
