Silver Wedding

My sister and her husband's best friends will be celebrating their silver wedding anniversary this month and they asked me to make a card for them to give the couple.  Here's what I came up with, it's a big one made with a shaped 8x8 blank.

The cute image is a free digi from Sylvia Zet, you'll find it here.  I coloured it with Promarkers, added Glamour Dust to the heart and embellished with clear gems.  The sentiment banners were computer generated.
I used lots of different finishes of silver card which made this project a nightmare to photograph!  The flourishes were cut with a Spellbinders die from my Jewelled Flowers set and the heart border was done with a Martha Stewart punch.  The flowers were made with punches and I finished off with a white organza bow, a heart charm, large grey pearls and small white ones.
