A couple of days ago I had a text from a friend asking me to make a card for a 70th Wedding Anniversary! ....I know - I had to text her back to make sure she hadn't made a typo!
How fantastic is that.....70 years of marriage - Wow!!!
Straight away I new what image I was going to use - I've wanted an excuse to buy it for ages - and this was the perfect one!
Jack & Ginger by Mo Manning. I fell in love with this sweet couple when I first saw them and was straight over to Mo's fantastic shop to buy them - $5 very well spent too :)
I also followed the challenge on Mo's Challenge Blog - 'White on White' ...although by time I'd finished with my antique linen distressing ink there's not a huge amount of white left! I do hope the fact I started with white counts!!!
I just love colouring Mo's images and love to print them quite large - this card is 21cm x 21cm, I thought such a huge occasion needed a larger than normal card too!
I embossed 3 panels with my Cuttlebug and added some wide organza ribbon, WOC flowers, pins and pearls. The hearts are using a MS punch. I layered all of the pieces onto silver mirri board - I've not yet seen a Platinum one! The sentiments mention their names, Platinum & 70 years - I wanted to get them all on!
Although my colouring skills aren't as great as some of you out there, I can't not show you a close up of the happy couple.....
and here's a close up of the flower detail.....
There are a couple of challenges I'd like to enter this card into...
Mo's Digital Pencil - White on White
ABC - D for Distressing
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes!
Pile it On - Layers
