65 years!

Good Morning peeps, the winter is a coming, there is a nip in the air today so I think its time to get the old jumpers out and get the shorts and t shirts packed away for another year. Thank goodness I got a holiday this year as we really didn't get much sun this summer did we? Well I got my daughter settled in college, its very strange not having her here and I'm so tempted to text her every hour or so to ask what s she's doing now lol but I'm being good and I'm just phoning her in the evening to hear how her day has been, of course she's fine and she's loving it. Well, I was asked to make a card for a 65th Anniversary, wow, Imagine 65 years of marriage! I came up with this little card, the stone for 65 years is sapphire so I added a little sapphire coloured gem to the flower I made, these little gems are from The Ribbon Girl, you buy the diamonte spacer and add your chosen stone, aren't they gorgeous? The little pin is also from the Ribbon Girl and I've added some extra beads from my Stampin Up Pretties kit.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity ~ Numbers
Simply Create Too ~ Anything Goes
My Sheri Crafts ~ Family
Sweet Stampin Challenge ~ Simply Sentimental

Hi there; I like your simple style vintage card with another colour than brown! I'm not so inventive regarding vintage myself so I like watching others.

Can't get your page to load properly Donna but could see the card alright. Its just gorgeous, love the flowers and pin. My daughter is over in Cheltenham doing an Illustration degree. Long journey but she is so loving it. This is her second year already! Not too far for you then, glad she is enjoying it.
