Anniversary...Cream and Gold.

 A closer view of the flowers and the lovely Gold beaded stems.

This Golden Anniversary card is a commission and I was asked to use the couple's wedding photo on the card. After a lot of thought I decided to change the photo in my computer and made it Sepia instead of Black and White as it was originally. It just looked a whole lot better with the cream and gold colours.
The only paper I used is the Happy Anniversary Vellum on the base of the card. The card stock itself has a lovely golden hue to it, but unfortunately the photo of the card doesn't show it at all. Shame really as it looks lovely in real life.
I have used metal corners, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Lace, ribbon and pearls from my stash
Nesties and Marianne Creatables die cuts
Gold beaded stems from John Lewis

It's been ages since I entered any challenges so with that in mind I had a wee look around and found  three.

(my New is the Beaded Stem and old is my Nesties)
C.R.A.F.T ........Anniversary 
(had a problem with Mr Linky on this one so not sure if I'm in the challenge or not)

I have another to make this time for a Ruby wedding, also using a Wedding photo I will show it in the next few days.  Thanks so much for your visit hope you enjoyed being here.
