Diamond Wedding

I had a commissioned card for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary to make recently.  Once again I've used the May sketch from the Sketch File Blog to base it on - it's such a lovely LO to go mad with lots of lovely embellishing bits and pieces!

Materials and Tools
Card: Centura Pearl White with a hint of Silver used for most layers
 Silver Glitter card behind first large square and sentiment banner
Die: "Lace Doily Motifs" (Spellbinders)
White lace, White organza ribbon
Various wired flowers and leaves,
 Pearl Spray, Crystal Spray
Silver Gems
Sentiment was printed on the pc then the "tails" cut by hand before matting onto silver glitter card
The finished sentiment banner was glued down in an arc to stand away slightly from the card
May LO from The Sketch File
I did make a few "tweaks" (but that's allowed), I added a couple of extra background layers, changed the main circle for a square, used on end to keep the diamond theme, and I added a banner sentiment. 

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you'll leave a comment
