At last a card!!!

Firstly I would like to thank you all for sticking around after my lack of posts over the past week and a half.
And secondly thank you all for your kind words.

Now to the latest card.
This is a commission card for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary. I didn't have a date to put on as the lady couldn't remember when the actual date was. I prefer to put a date on especially with an anniversary card as I feel its more personalised.
Wording done on PC using English Vivace font. Printed in what I hoped was a ruby colour. Swirls done with swirl embossing folder using my trust cuttlebug. matted onto red card stock and a red heart die cut too with the cuttlebug.

 I then added red gems to the hearts as I wanted just to add a bit of sparkle. Never done it before. hope you think it looks okay. Was rather fiddly I must admit!! 

thanks as always for looking and any comments good or bad or any suggestions for future anniversary cards.
hugs to you all until next time

  13. A lovely card, I agree with you about liking to put dates on cards but I suppose if the lady wasn't sure it's better not to put one at all than to accidentally put the wrong date! X
