Golden Years

Good morning I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are all refreshed for the week ahead.  We have a new challenge at Lexi's Creations starting today and the theme is Anniversary/Special Occasion.  Our next door neighbours will be celebrating their Golden Anniversary soon so I thought I would make a card for that, they don't know about my blog so all will be safe!

I was very lucky to win Mag's candy the other day and this beautiful Sizzix die was in it - thank you Mags! I used Centura Pearl to cut the die out and some gold foil card to back.  The sentiment was done on my PC and I cut it out using Cheery Lynn Mini Pearl Doily die and backed it onto Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.  All the layers are on foam squares for some dimension.  Ribbon, flowers, stamens, heart pin, pearl heart and crystals are all from my stash and I have used some gold Acrylic paint to colour some of them.

I will make an insert nearer the time. Please head over to Lexis for some more inspiration and details of the challenge.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with a Bow
Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge - Love and Marriage

Well today is my only free day this week so I am going to head over to the gym and then hopefully have a crafty day if Mr Mojo wants to come out and play that is! Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing and a big thank you for visiting me and any comments you may leave, take care xx
