Ruby Wedding Card .... and news of a give away ....

My husband and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday gone, and I made him this card using this lovely Lili of the Valley diecut.

I added some gorgeous pink mulberry blossoms, large rosebuds, 35mm and 25mm roses and 25mm rose leaves, which you can find here in the next day or so plus my Martha Stewart branch punch was put to good use again.  I tied a bow with 100% pure silk ribbon in Rose and finished the card with some sparkly stick on gems

Now I don't know about your other half, but mine always changes the lyrics to that old Peggy Lee song 'Mr Wonderful - that's you' to 'Mr Wonderful, that's me' so I put the song inside the card - he is wonderful by the way and I wouldn't swap him!  I cut the number 40 with Papertrey Ink Paper Dies and used the leftover rose patterned paper from the front of the card.

Andrea and I have been very busy this weekend with family celebrations and also our lovely friend Sue came over to the UK from New Zealand and spent a couple of days with us, but if you pop over to the Ribbon Girl Blog this evening you will find a give away of one of our RED mini ribbon kits .
