Woodware - Silver Wedding Celebrations

This week at Woodware we have been asked to come up with a card for a Silver Wedding Anniversary. For some reason I always struggle with Anniversary cards. So I have kept this one very simple.

The background was made using a Stampendous stamp CRV268. This beautifully ornate scroll is lovely on it's own or used repeatedly to create a background. In this case it was stamped with silver ink onto parchment paper and embossed with silver embossing powder. Unfortunately the photo does not do it justice. It is so difficult to get good pictures at this time of year!!
The centre square was stamped with a script stamp (Celebrate) and embossed with a detail silver powder as it was such a fine script.
The numbers were die cut from some graphite coloured card which I stuck onto a piece of double sided adhesive film. Once cut I peeled off the backing paper and covered with a multi-crystal glitter.

To finish off I added some silver gem stones and a ribbon. Ideally I would have used a wider silver ribbon. But I could not find any despite having two baskets stuffed with ribbons...... isn't that always the way. Debs made a lovely card yesterday on the blog and I am looking forward to seeing what the other girls come up with.
Keep warm and keep crafting.
