50th Wedding Anniversary

Hi Everyone, my card today is for a friend of mine, I have known her since we worked together 55 years ago, we sort of lost touch apart from Christmas cards and then after I retired, she was part of a get together of old workmates that I now go out with monthly. Here's a photo of me in the window of my old workplace, I like that they put me with some diarrhoea tablets LOL. (blue arrow points me out). The display with me in it! was because Boots was celebrating 120 years in Wales. Nope I wasn't there 120 years ago, nearly! but not quite.






Anyhow enough nonsense, on to my card. I used this card as inspiration Here.
corner die - Sue Wilson 
pieced square dies - Sue Wilson
congratulations die - Tattered Lace, 3 layers
champagne glasses, heart and numbers dies  - freebies in magazines
paper is a wall paper sample
card - Centura Pearl gold
