Twenty Five Happy Years!!...

Our friends, Khalid and Adele, celebrate twenty five years of marriage in February. They had a big party in Middlesborough, which we of course attended, and this is the card that I made for them.
I had some very pretty rose patterned paper on my computer, so I printed it off onto some pearlised paper, and used it to cover the front of a scalloped 8" square card. I then topped it with a beautiful filigree heart cut from silver mirri card. I added a patterned paper heart to the centre of the filigree heart and topped it with '25' cut from silver glitter card shadowed with silver mirri. 'Happy Anniversary' was stamped onto a scrap of the rose paper, then die-cut using an XCut label die. 'K' & 'A' were cut from more silver glittercard shadowed with mirri. All of the elements were adhered with foam pads. The heart was lavishly decorated with diecut foliage, sheer ribbon and pearlised flowers, with a smattering of clear gems to complete the card.....

....along with a decorated 'pizza-style' box to put it in!
Adele later informed me that she has framed the card. Result!
