Simon Says - Wednesday Challenge

The challenge over at Simon Says is Wedding/Anniversary and as I've just finished this anniversary card for our friends' 47th wedding anniversary I thought I'd enter.

I've used an Anna-Maria 8x8 card blank and embossed the front with an Embossalicious e/f and then cut a piece of dark gold cardstock slightly smaller than the card front and embossed it with the same e/f.  I cut a frame using nesties and used the "waste" at the back of the frame to stamp my greeting which is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I used my lovely Delicata GoldenGlitz ink to stamp.  I used my Tattered Lace Double Delights die to cut two of the shapes out of gold cardstock and attached them to the back of the frame which I had already embossed using Sue Wilson's lattice e/f.  This was then popped up over the sentiment (which I curved on my block to match the space in between the two die cuts).  I added a ribbon and some Liquid Pearls to finish.

Thanks for dropping by.

Happy crafting.
