Silver Wedding Anniversary

Good morning all & a very happy Friday to you!
Today I have a rather special card to share with you!
Or rather should I say a card for a very special occasion to share!

Yep, it's 25 years since my hubby & I tied the knot!
Not sure where those years have gone but boy have they been fun!
The photo's aren't great I'm afraid as time was limited & all
 that mirror card just kept flashing back at me!
I made an A5 card, using linen embossed card stock.

I blew off the dust, then cut the shapes & numbers with my underused Cricut.
The white panel under the numbers was embossed with a cuttlebug folder.
I the wrapped the panel with silver string , stuck on the numbers & attached
the TH so they were hanging in the 5.

Next, I tried something I've been meaning to try for ages!
I printed my sentiment on to some vellum then embossed before
 the ink was dry. I then fussy cut around them.

The final addition was a little heart, cut using my Cricut.
I added an insert with a beautiful poem I found, which
just sums us up totally, in my mind anyway! lol
I had a lot of fun making this card, fingers crossed hubby likes it too!
Thanks  for popping in!
