Pearl Anniversary card & box

Hi Everyone, my elder brother and his wife have just celebrated their Pearl (30th) Wedding Anniversary.

I wanted to make something completely different to what I usually make, to do this I started by looking through my files and saw a digi rosette and realised I had cut files, never used. That's a start, look for paper and saw this - a card made LOL.

I used Pink Petticoat Elegance digi paper, the rosette is a file by Lettering Delights, the silver is embossed with a Tattered Lace border die, the pearls are from The Range, the sentiment was done in PS. I couldn't think of how else to place it, without retracting from the rosette, but think it looks OK. I cut a heart with 30 in the middle, placed a pearl for the inside. Sometime in the past I saw some cards where the "empty space" had been filled with embossed lines so did it on this one. some pearls on top of them voila!


 For the box I placed the PP paper and added the pearls to the flowers as for the card, I made a tag in PS with a flower which to me matched the paper.

This is simply gorgeous Faith. Stunning in every way. Love the addition of the stripes (in the empty space) topped with the pearls. Very nicely put together - the entire package!
