55th Wedding Anniversary

My cousin's parents recently celebrated their 55th Wedding Anniversary - Emerald and mentioned how hard it was to find an appropriate card.  How could I not offer to make one for family.  Now green is not my thing but I am really happy with this card and it was so nice to put papers and card into use that rarely get looked at.  I layered up green and cream card stock added some vellum with vines, a piece of glitter card stock, cut out the word anniversary with my new letters die.  The flowers and leaves I also cut from die.  For the flowers I used crepe paper that I had played with many years ago to create this wonderful light and dark effect.   I think we added different food colourings to white crepe paper.  The card layout and inspiration came from this card by SisterSandie on Splitcoaststampers.

Its back to work for me, so things may slow down again in bogland.   I hope not as I have really enjoyed catching up with everyones crafting and feeling very inspired craft wise. Although I will have a few scheduled cards from last year to share, so that will keep things on my blog moving.  Hopefully I have better plans and organisation this year that I can (want to) sit at my craft desk a little more often.

Have a great day.
