Diamond Wedding Anniversary

On Thursday Arthur and Olwyn, a young couple from church celebrated their 6oth Wedding Anniversary.
It's a pleasure to introduce you to Mr and Mrs A Barnes, I did say young couple they are young in spirit.
They are a delightful couple and I love their hugs.
We had a surprize luncheon for them, Gordon our Pastor picked them up and bought them out to the Powers House who kindly lent us their home for the day.
Here's all the official cards they recieved from the Queen, Prime Minster, Governor Genral , Local member of Parilment etc.
Here's the card I made fro them, I wanted it to be simply elegant and I think I achieved it.
I have used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Mocha Morning Specialty DSP.
 Here's the inside, I have used God'd Blessings and changed from happy birthday to anniversary which is from Teeny Tiny Srentiments. I also used Soft Suede Marker and inked up only a corner of the Four Frames and stamped in each corner.
I made this matching box which has got an album inside.
Here's a close up of the rose, I love it. Tanya Bell made a Utube video this week on how to made these.
Go and check her blog HERE.
I made a Trishutter Album, which was designed Gilda Fellows for 'Oh My Word Ustamp with Dawn and Friends'.
I printed on my printer the middle panels, I found how change your ink settings so you can print in SU colours HERE, so I was able to print in Cherry Cobbler.
We had a fantastic day.
