50 Years, JAI88

50 Years and still going strong.
Just Add Ink Challenge 88

Well yes that is right everyone my Mum and Dad are celebrating a milestone today because it is their 50th Wedding anniversary. What an accomplishment, I say. Three cheers for them. So with that in mind as it really is a special day I wanted to make a special card. Now for the 50th its Gold. So I had some of the brushed gold papers in my stack and set about making their card. I have also used the very vanilla which I think go lovely together.

I wanted to make a style that I haven't done before and as I have seen alot of these I went with this style not sure what its called. I have used a couple of the dies that go through the bigshot machine as well and I am loving this die called Fun Flowers at the moment. It is just so gorgeous.

Before I popped my card in its envelope I did abit of blog surfing and went and had a look at my favorite challenge website Just Add Ink and blow and behold the challenge this week is to Just add a Die Cut. This card is perfect for this weeks challenge so I have entered it. I have been very busy for a while now and haven't been doing alot of the challenges from Just Add Ink, but I am now back and ready to play. So pop on over to their web and have a look at all the inspiration from the Design Team.

Here is my card
I have die cut the flowers and water spritzed and scrunched up and stuck together with a gold brad. The other flower at the top right corner is the Blossom Party Die and put together like the other one. The very vanilla cardstock is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder. The wooden 50 has been daubed with gold metallic ink.

I have put a photo of my parents when they were dating on the front and then I put a photo of them on their wedding day on the inside of the card. I took photos of my card prior to putting these photos on.

I had enough flowers left over so I could put one on the inside and the envelope.
This is a picture of the whole package. So thank you for stopping by and until next time, Happy Stamping.
