Ruby Wedding Anniversary


Another friend of a friend is celebrating a
Ruby Wedding Anniversary and I was asked to make a boxed card. It needed to be quite conservative so I hope this one fits the bill.

Gold embossing, using two GKD stamp sets onto red card. The base card is red with a layer of gold followed by some pretty Asian dp.  Two layers of ribbon with some red and gold flowers soften the card a little and a few pearls to finish off.


The box was cut from the same red card with a layer of Websters Pages dp. A Spellbinder cut heart along with another flower and some gold leaves complete the lid.

This is a quick post, Walshie and I have been working in the garden today, it was looking a bit neglected after a month away.  Trouble is I never know when to stop and I'm feeling just a bit sore and tired now!!!  Still we have to keep it nice so the Wallaby has a nice place to eat and the other thing he does in my garden!!!


This last photo is for you Jose!!! This is how I take my photo's  outside on my little deck off the kitchen.
I hate using the light tent and hope the Photographer, who is teaching a little group of us to take better pictures can give me a few pointers!!!!!
It was hard to explain in an email without pictures.


p.s. That's the Bush you can see in the background NOT my garden (which is a little better that this!!)

I'm off for a soak!!!

Watch the gardening on the back, just got over throwing mine out, hehehehehe. So what did I do, today hauled a truck load of earth with Louis to the backyard. I just never learn!!!!

LOL, that last comment about it being the bush and not your garden was so funny. LOVE the red card with the gold embossing. So rich and beautiful with detail. The box is simply fabulous. Best, Curt
