Ruby Wedding Anniversary Card

Good morning crafters,

Firstly thank you to all those who have already sponsored me for the London Bridges Walk for Kidney research.  The walk was yesterday and the rain held off, which was great, but it was actually quite a bit longer than the original 7 miles, in fact almost 10 miles.  But we all made it and hopefully together we will make a differenct to Kidney Research.  If you haven't donated there's still time.  Here's the link

I can't believe we are already in July, where is this year going.  Today I'm sharing a commissioned Anniversary card.  I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Tag template for the shape. The papers are from Pion Designs Wedding collection, I love all the creams and beige papers, just perfect for weddings and anniversary and vintage in general.  All links at the bottom of the post.

I used a tag from the Images sheet from the same collection to position on the inside of the card.

I started with  a cream Magnolia and added 20mm, 10mm  roses, white berries and red berries and a touch of gesso just to tone them down a bit. Tied with a seam binding bow and finished with a clay heart in the centre of the bow.

The little flourish leaves are from the Oval die set, so elegant.

The larger feather style leaves are from a Vintage Flourish die, links at the bottom.

I used the heart with butterffly die but cut it out with the centre heart in place to make it an aperture and pop the picture of the couple inside.

I added the BEAUTY embellishment to the corner.

Of course I used the gorgeous Pion Design matching butterflies and positioned inside the Butterfly border diecut and added flat backed pearl string to the centres.

You can also see the pearl pin sticking up from the floral display.

I added a resin oval frame and again used the Pion Design paper for the "40". edged with walnut ink distrress ink.

Unknown said... did they manage to increase the walk by 3 miles???I mean 1/2 mile, sure that can happen but 3!!! Anywho; glad you enjoyed it and that it wasn't pouring down. Enough of grey now;'s the 3rd day with overcast skies, soooooo boring!

Beautiful as always; love the neautral elegant colours and the addition of the red berries is of course perfect for the occasion.
