Happy Anniversary!

Good evening!  I hope you are having a very creative week.
This is an anniversary card for a couple who have been together for 54 years!.
Their love is endless for each other.

The paper is DCWV Formal Affair, basil and basic white.
Dies and punches are spellbinders, whimsy and MS.
Doilies, lace and tulle are from my stash.
MS pearls and basic jewels were used.
I created the sentiment using my computer. 
Flowers are all wild orchid except my posies and
 the one large prima flower.

I am entering this in:
Sketch Saturday Challenge # 222

Best wishes for you to have a wonderful Sept. long weekend!


Happy B-Day Sis .....

Hello, I hope your weekend was filled with as
 beautiful weather as we saw here!
My sister's B-Day is here and this is the card I made for her.
Couldn't think of a better picture because we don't live close and wish I could be
with her on her special day!  I coloure the gals with my copics. 

I used MS essentials paper pad.  Tim Holtz, spellbinders and magnolia die.
I recycled, painted and crackled cardboard and a broken necklace was also recyled into the bead sprays.   Dazzling diamonds, star dust and basic jewels were to added to give the sparkle.
Ribbon is used from my stash. 
Here is the inside sentiment.

 Here is the birthday wishes and room for hand written sentiments.
The back.
