Diamond wedding card

Hi everybody, why is it when i get asked to make a card do i spend so much thinking time about what the recipient will like and disregard each idea i come up with until its ..."right i must get this card done"  as i am running out of time!
I was asked by my MIL to make a "Diamond Wedding Anniversary" card for my sis-in-law's parents and after thinking all week.."what am i going to do....what am i going to do"  i set too last night and came up with a beautiful card which i am proud of and didn't really want to hand over !  Well i'll let you judge for yourself so here it is.

I used a computer generated message and just a simple band across the middle with some really elegant paper on top of a band of silver mirri card punched along the edge with a Friskers edge punch ... it's a shame you can't see the paper to its full effect as its silver embossed!  I added a ribbon with a diamante brad in the centre and some up above.

Hope you also like it ... i would love to know what you think.   
ps... ribbon is cut better than it looks on the pic !!

Thanks for looking

Digital cards

Hi everybody, I have made these two cards with my digital program, they were made for my two niece's (who are twins) for their 21st birthdays. The first one for Sarah-Louise shows her sitting on the horse (i decoupages her three times) she is studying "dressage with horses" at agricultural college and hopes to become a vet!

Second one is for her sister Anna-Marie who loves photagraphy, the pic on the card are personal to her! The theme was supposed to be an airmail letter as she would like to travel but i had to cut the red and blue cheverons from the edge that is on airmail letters as it didn't look right on the backing papers i was using.

Ruby Wedding card

I was asked by a friend to make a Ruby Wedding card from the design of a card i made in June ...i used a red ribbon instead of the white one on the previous and silver behind the heart to make it stand out more.

Thanks for looking

Mono Colour card

Hello everybody, sorry its been a while since i shared a card with you. This one is being entered in the  Crafters ReUnited forum "July Inspirationals challenge" its navy rather than black. I made it for a friends birthday and thought it would fit the profile perfectly for the challenge.

Hope you like it....wish me luck!!
