"Siler Wedding Wishes"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.
Thank you for calling in today, great to see you all.
Have you seen the number of followers I have now ...................... 96!!
Welcome to my new followers, thank you so much for choosing to follow me here in my wee corner of Blogland.  A few weeks ago I said I would start putting together a few goodies to celebrate getting to 100 followers thinking it would be about Christmas.  Oh! Oh! I had better get a move on I think it might be a little sooner.
A lot better in this house once again, a good nights sleep was had by both of us.   Thank you all very much for your kind words and thoughts.  Took John to Perth this morning he wanted to get his hair cut.  Really don`t know why is was so necessary, he`s not going anywhere!!!   Took him almost to the door of the Barbers Shop.  Once that was done we crossed the road and I sat him in a cafe while I went off to get a few things, went back for him in the car.  Bit of a pain as he insisted I use his car, it is easier for him to get in and out of.   It is much higher and bigger than mine and you just cant nip into little spaces so easily.
Today`s card is a Silver Wedding Card.  
I made one for a customer last week and forgot to photograph it.  She had shown her card to Yvonne`s mum (girl who is celebrating her Silver Wedding)  she said "OMG!! I cant give my daughter the card I have bought when I see that.    Do you think Patricia would make a card for me?"  
Here is what I did, of course it had to be very different from the one I had already done for the couple. A bit of brain power needed and there is not many crafting ideas going on in my brain at the moment.

Base card 8 x 8 
I cut some white card slightly less than 8 x 8 to use as a base to work on
I embossed a piece of not to shiny Mirri Card with the tumbling Hearts Folder, a piece of white card with a Dotty Folder
Cut these slightly smaller than my working base card then cut them diagonally and placed them together
Computer generated the greeting cut that out using SB Opulent Ovals
Cut the larger size of the same Die in Mirri and attached
Used Heartfelt Creations by SB Delicate Aster Die for the flowers plus the leaf Die that comes with the set
Popped some small pearls in the centre of the flowers
When it was finished I felt it need something in the bottom corner.  Found the Die Cut corner in my box, don`t know if it is quite right however the customer was over the moon.

Thank you so much for calling by today I really appreciate it
Till next time
