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

  1. Fantastic card Carole, no wonder you didn't want to give it away! Val xx

  2. This looks like a very interesting card - would have liked to see it as you can't get a true feel for the card/papers used from a picture. You've succeeded again even if it is at the last minute!
