50th anniversary - card 3

First day back to school today for Stuart, he has a days grace though as the children aren't back 'til tomorrow so today he is being trained up and taught "new" ways to handle them! Back to school also means getting back into routine for me. I have to say I LOVE having him home for the school break but I do get out of a routine and things I should be doing just don't get done. So I am looking forward to settling back into planning events, crafting, blogging and housework. 

Just a quick post today - I thought I'd show you another of the anniversary cards I made last month. Here's the one I made for my mom and dad to give. 

Doily Sparkle

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand
Ink: VersaMark
Punch: Doily Triple Layer
Big Shot: Timeless Type Junior Alphabet
Ribbon: Very Vanilla Satin
Accessories: Pearls, Champagne Shimmer Mist 
Emboss Powder: Gold

As before I cut out the 50 using the timeless type alphabet after I'd embossed a piece of cardstock with gold embossing powder. I used the triple layer punch to do some pretty doilies that layered on top of one another to give some depth and added colour to a very light coloured card. I was trying to go for and elegant card that just had a really small pop of colour! I tied the ribbon around the card in a bow and assembled the doilies and 50 around it. I finished off the card with some pearls and a few spritzs of the champagne shimmer mist - this one REALLY glittered - you can see it sparkling in the photo. Love it!

What do you think? I hope you like it!

Happy Crafting,
