Almost a silver wedding aniversary

Hello!

Tomorrow one of my sisters - Jacqueline - and her husband are celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary.
I made a card for them which turned out to be a perfect match with this weeks' challenge at the Shabby Tea Room

Based upon neutrals:




I made every piece of the card myself.. I stamped the background with a floral stamp from Darkroom Door in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder
An embossed heart made from kraft paper; after cutting and embossing the heart I rubbed it white ink. The flower is made from satin fabric and I glued some pearls in the center. I also cut a scalloped  square out of cardboard with my Spellbinders label one and painted it with white craft paint.




The banners are made of ribbon and the borders are made with a  border punch (cut from an old book page) and and a border die (cut of vanilla cardstock)




A few silver pearls and some ink around the edges...here is my card:




Have a great day; till soon!
