Diamond Wedding Anniversary

I've made this card to enter into the CD Sunday Challenge this week, which is Something Beginning With D. This is a Diamond Wedding Anniversary card using Die Cuts and also Debbi Moores One Fine Lady CD. I should have posted this earlier in the week, but unfortunately our poor dog who had been unwell recently had to be put down. He had leukaemia, and although we had only just found this out, he was going down hill really fast. We're now adjusting to a quieter house with out our furry friend following us around. Anyway onto the card, it's an 8x8 card base, matted with gold mirri card. The backing paper is from the CD, and the topper from one of the design sheets. The corners are from a Marianne die and also the swirls, the flowers are crealies dies and leaves a Nelli Snellen punch. The sentiment was made using my Foiling machine, and I've just added some diamantes from my stash. I'm off to cheer myself up tomorrow with some retail therapy at Ally Pally.

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