We're celebrating

Tuesday is our Silver Wedding anniversary. I don't always make cards for hubby as he hasn't fully convinced me he appreciates them but we won't have another Silver Wedding so I thought I should take the opportunity this year. I knew from the start that I wanted to use a piece of pearly card embossed in my Cuttlebug. I also wanted a sprinkling of silver embossing round the edge (here using A Stamp in the Hand's Field of Sky). The 25 was not quite what I had in mind. And it was quite late on that I thought I might use this stunning Elusive Images chandelier as a 'watermark' behind the number. But it didn't want to stay in the background and I decided it was a suitable image for a man's card so I let it take centre stage. The stripy card is Kanban Mono Christmas Stripes Background. The die cut and embossed border is made using a Marianne D Creatable die with a silver ribbon threaded through.

I often forget to take photos of what I make and when I do is is often a rushed afterthought. I really ought to put some effort into getting some decent pictures for the blog. It doesn't help that I often find myself taking photos at silly times of the day. I must work on my photography techniques so I can do justice to my cards.
