Silver Wedding Anniversary Card

In 1968 when I was 8 and my sister was 4 we moved. We made friends with the girl who lived next door and our Mum's still live in the same houses next door to each other now. Twenty Five years ago at the beginning of June she got married and now it's coming up to her Silver Wedding Anniversary.
I shall be away on the day but have made this card to leave with my Mum to give to her on the day. I've used Debbi Moores Country Rose CD for the papers and the decoupage roses on this box card, also a heart paper punch, tattered lace champagne bottle and die cuts from All occasion dies. The Die cut on the front is from Tonic, cut out 3 times and stuck together then painted with black gesso. Once the gesso was dry I added some pebeo silver gilding wax and then placed onto the front flap.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
