"Golden Wedding Card"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any poppers by, hope you are all well.  
Don`t know about you guys but I fear we are not going to get a summer this year.  Hopefully July might be better than June has been.
Thomas our older Grandson (almost 12) was off to the Vet School in Edinburgh with his dad yesterday.  A few months ago while Audrey was out walking Thomas` dog, Audrey threw a stick for Corrie,  she jumped to catch it, it went in her mouth and down her throat.  Quick home, along to the Vet where she had to have an emergency operation.  Warning:- to all you dog owners DON`T throw sticks no matter how much they love it. 
About 6 weeks ago Corrie developed an abscess on her neck which was oozzing "gunk".  Back to the Vet, he reckoned there was still a bit stick there.  After several X-Rays showing nothing they had to take Corrie to Edinburgh to have a "MRI Scan" today and her operation tomorrow if they find what is causing the problem.  Poor Thomas is devistated but taking it very bravely.  The Vet leading the team told him of the risks but reassured him he was leaving his much loved dog in very capable hands. Fingers crossed it all goes well and they can pick Corrie up on Friday.
Anyway enough of the sad stuff.
I had a phone call from my friend in the village needing a card for a Golden Wedding.  Now there`s a happy thought a couple who have managed to last 50 years.
Here is my card:-

Base card 8x8
Yellow card from a pack bought in the States a few years ago
White card spritzed and run through a Roses EF
Yellow 160gsm paper for the Roses SB A Gilded Life ... Garden Blooms
Leaves are cut using very old Dies
Lace is Signature Die from JS I think is called Grace Lace
Sentiment done on the computer, cut out with very old SB Dies
Sick Pin made up from Beads from my box
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
