Another 25!

Hello friends!!

...not for us this time but for some friends of ours (25 years)...I doubt hubby and I will see another never knows as my mum is 97!

Here is the card I made for them and the box......

and one more to try to show you how much it sparkles....

The male half of the couple receiving this card hates I used the lovely sparkly (the photo still does not do it justice) silver glitter card I found at a show...all encapsulated and it really blings IRL.

The background was embossed with a creative expressions folder and I did a sheet of tissue paper to match to wrap the card in the box. A tip I picked up from Crafters Companion...brilliant...makes a plain sheet of tissue look really knew that...oh well...always behind with trends, that's me!

The numbers are Tonic and the banner is a Sue Wilson die and the stamped and embossed sentiment is an old one from stash.
I began making this card before my holidays but it just wouldn't come together...not till last week! see I told you I can never make a quick card...that's probably why i am not very productive.

Ok.....busy day so I will rush on.
Weather here is wet, sunny, get the picture...washing in.... on the airer!
Hope it's better for the weekend, speaking of which I hope you all have a good one.
Thanks for stopping by, your visit is much appreciated as are all the lovely comments you leave me.
Take care everyone.
