Golden Oldies

I've made this card for my sister in law and her husband who are going to be grandparents for the first time next month.  They certainly don't look like the couple on the card but they do have a sense of humour..... I hope!
The fun image is a Mo Manning stamp and has been coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are Papermania Hot Diggedy Dog and have been simply layered up, leaving one edge unstuck so the tag can be pulled out.
The sentiment stamps are from Personal Impressions.
The flowers were made with an Xcut punch with Cotton Candy Stickles in the centres.  I also added a few blobs of Pearl Pen for good measure.
Some knotted ribbon and a few blue pearls finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Stampin' for the Weekend - #10 - sketch
Joanna Sheen - remember when
Cupcake Craft - #195 - tag you're it
Let's Ink it Up - #24 - favourite embellishments.  I used flowers and pearls

  4. Fab card Wendy. I meant to get this image for my hubby's card for our 40th anniversary in April but didn't. I was loaded with the 'flu and had to buy him a card. Can you imagine???!!! Perhaps I'll get it in time for our 50th!!!
    You must have the patience of a saint to punch out all those wee flowers. They look great.
