Pearls

This card is made for a couple at the Bowls Club who are celebrating their pearl anniversary this week.
I had drooled over some cards that Jan had made using her new wedding folders so was real happy when she kindly sent me some! I knew I would be able to use one on this anniversary card!
I cut round the embossed area and pushed out the centre. I stuck the centre onto white pearlised card and then added the feathers, pearls, fabric heart and some white organza ribbon.
I layered the embossed folder over it and finally printed the sentiment out, used 3d foam pads to raise it from the embbssing and added some tiny pearl centred vellum flowers.
Tuesday Taggers theme this week is Anniversaries - so here's my effort even though I am really disappointed with how this photo turned out - the card has a lovely textured sheen on it and the photo I don't think does it justice..... for once this IS one I'm happy with!
