Mum and Dads 50th Wedding Anniversary xx

My word what a morning I told you my head was all over the place well guess what I only went and forgot my Mum and Dads 50th Wedding Anniversary so this morning I have been trying to create a card!! I say trying as this is nothing like what was in my head but Mum did like it so everything worked out ok!!!

I must say though its so hard to do a card without an image my word especially when you are away with the fairy's!!!!! lol
Out came my favourite flower punches "Retro" in medium and small.
Cut out the heart with my Cherry Lynn die and then added the small flowers all around the edge and popped liquid pearls in the centers.
Cut the 50 out on my Cricut and added yellow stickles around the edges and a pretty butterfly.
These papers from Prima "Meadow Lark" are just the perfect colour and added to plain card perfect.
Loving the gold ribbon it was a candy win for the Olympics over at The Ribbon Girl to celebrate all our Gold Medals.

Challenges I am entering are:

Heck of a Challenge which starts today  -  First challenge  -  Anything Goes
(Was also the lucky winner of there yummy candy so can't wait to receive it)

Hi Chanelle,
Yes this is quite an unusual card from you, but I like it, and sometimes it's good to challenge yourself, you learn a lot from it. I know what it's like though when you realize you have forgotten something and you quickly need to make a card...stressful. It simply doesn't work with colouring images then...my saviour will be the Pion vintage images. 50 years of marriage, now that is serious committment. Congratulations to your parents!
Hugz,
Sandy
