Ruby Wedding!



Thank goodness the week end is here! I know, I know for us SAH types week ends don't mean quite the same......... BUT it's been such a tedious week here, I'm so please to draw a line underneath Friday and start again!!!

Thought I'd show you the card I put together 'by request'! Delish Webster's Pages paper from one of the 6 x 6 packs Selma sent me from Joan's store. Thank you Selma I l o v e this paper and thought it would be great for this Anniversary Card.

My 6 x 6 inch card uses a whole sheet with the centre cut away to show some Swiss dots embossed red card, I've placed my sentiment in an oval to sit over this section. Ribbon threaded lace sits across the top with roses and babies breath added to the side along with pearl hearts, heart pins and the gold embellies. I added Cherry Sprinkles to the Sentiment oval and a Cuttlebug die cut swirl for the bottom corner.

I found a great sentiment for inside this card, I always give a couple of choices, after all the person giving the card knows the recipients!

The card is boxed and I've decorated the lid with some Kaisercraft paper with a ribbon and scalloped strip, to which I added the Kaisercraft tag. A couple of the same Cuttlebug die cut swirls complete the lid.

That's it for today, thanks for dropping by. I need to get busy with some projects over the week end but I'll have my last DT card for TMITA on Monday, hope you'll call by then.

lol...Sometimes I think it's harder for us SAH people, as everyone in the universe thinks "she can do it, she's not working" - seems I have more to do in a day than a day has hours! Your card is beautiful! I'm lovin' the colors - how rich and elegant! Great card, Sue - TFS...
