25th Anniversary card

Our lovely boss at working is celebrating her 25th anniversary this week, so I have popped out a card for her...

I used centura pearl in white and embossed it through my big shot with a fiskars plate - yes these really DO work with the big shot.  I then mounted it onto some more centura silver and used blue as my main backing.  The punch is from stampin up, as is the whisper white ribbon.  The "25" I did on my ecraft with MTC - gotta love it!

The inside - with a piccy of them from their wedding - dont let anyone tell you that you cant get pictures off facebook!  You need to use the snipping tool to do it though, you cant just right click and save.

I googled the verse and liked this one best - didnt want it too slushy!  Printed it in light grey.

And a pic with George!  See that little black speck?  Yep, that's George - some sort of buggy thing!  Luckily he didnt decide to stay!   Phew!

I have entered this into the following challenges:-

C.R.A.F.T Challenge want to see anniversary cards..
Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog wants us to use punches..
Quirky Crafts want us to use numbers
Raise the Bar have an anything goes challenge on - and I really think I did raise the bar on this one!  This is nto a style I have tried before and I am quite chuffed with how it turned out.

Thanks for popping by

This is gorgeous Ruthie! She is going to love it. The sentiment is perfect. I made a mini album for our 25th in July and I think I'm going to scraplift this sentiment and put it on the back page (change yours to ours of course). hugs, eileen
