The Golden Touch

Hi everyone just a fleeting visit today.  I have been asked to make a 50th wedding anniversary card and this is the first of a few I have rolling around in my head.  I couldn't decide whether to go clean and simple or fussy so I'm doing both and will let the lady decide which she would prefer.
So this is the first one finished and I went for the clean and simple look with this one.  This is quite a large card for me its an 8 x 8 but I think it works.  I used my Nellie's multi frame dies to make the layered heart and used some old 'congratulation' peel offs to frame the largest heart.  The diamonte buckle is something I had floating around in my stash which had tarnished but it goes pretty well. 

From the side you can see the layered heart better.  All in all I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Okay dashing off now.  My youngest's home learning this week is all about the classic kiddies stories like Little Red Riding Hood or Billy Goats Gruff etc.  Well she has chosen Jack and the Beanstalk and she has to make something related to this to take in.  I'm not going down the paper mache route this time but you can guarantee when she gets home she won't want to make something simple so I'm off to raid my crafty stash and prepare for operation beanstalk at 3.30 today!
Take care folks and happy crafting

  8. I love this style of card Ann-Marie. I know it's classed as clean and simple (which somehow never sounds a very flattering term to me!) and I always find them so striking and elegant, which is perfect for the occasion.
