Pearl Anniversary Card


It's my sister & brother -in-law's Pearl Wedding Anniversary on Monday - Congratulations to them! :-) This is the card that I've made for them - it's in the hands of the Royal Mail now ........................


I used my Martha Stewart edge punch, my new nestabilities set & pearl embelishments along with the chipboard numbers which happened to be on the counter of the local craft shop when we popped in on Friday afternoon - great as they were just what I needed!!

I painted the numbers with acrylic paint & then use Tim Holtz crackle paint over the top & used alcohol ink in red to enhance the crackle.




I added blooms which I used pearl brads to follow the theme.
