Anniversary card ....

A folding decorative corner card* for a couple celebrating their 30th (Pearl) Wedding Anniversary.  The card folds flat so it fits into a box, or an envelope if you don't use 3d flowers.  I used some of my old Pion papers which I keep in my 'special paper' box only to be used for special occasion projects,  then added a diecut heart.

My flower arrangement includes ivory gardenia, white lily flowers, Kort and Godt ivory beaded berries and a white chrysanth, white pretty blossom and a little bow made from 15mm ivory faux silk. 
All edges were distressed with gathered twigs ink 

I embellished the heart with 3 - 6mm ivory self adhesive pearls, on the bottom I added 10mm square flatback s/a pearl trim and the top of the folding card has gorgeous 15mm 'Rosa' ivory guipure lace, both adhered with 6mm double sided tape

All of the flowers, ribbon, lace, pearls and trim and sticky tape are from
*  This technique is NEW to me and I was inspired by this tutorial

As this is a new year, I thought I would like to join in with more challenges so I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Thank you for entering your gorgeous Anniversary card into our challenge Mary. Sadly, our New was not a new technique, or new stash, but specifically new events/occasions, with a list of possible suggestions mentioned in the challenge post....
