Happy 60th anniversary

Hello everybody! I'm back with a new card. This one was made for 2 were special people - my grandparents. They just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary (wow, right?!). I really wanted to make a shabby chic/romantic card for them and this is what I came up with.


I had these gorgeous shabby chic papers in my stash and I thought they would be perfect for my project. To achieve a (more) romantic look I added lace, pearls and flowers. I also used some crystals, chipboard peices and heart shaped sequins to decorate the card. I distressed the edges with my scissors.


I made the flowers myself - I used white and pale pink foamiran to make them. You fan find foamiran in lots of different colours at Magnolia-licious store

To make the big flower I used Tim Holtz's Tattered florals die and for the small (pink) flowers I used Rosy dot AC3 dies. For the center of the flowers I used different stamens from Magnolia-licious store.



This is all from me today. Have a wonderful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
