Today is my friend Cally's wedding anniversary. I think she told me that her and Gary had been married 17 years this year. Doesn't seem possible as I remember her 'eloping' all those years ago when she was a mere slip of a girl - *lol* She had a very quiet wedding as they went to Gretna Green to get married and it was only them and a couple of friends as witnesses. She was still mourning the death of her Mum and didn't feel right with a big 'do' so decided to keep it simple but hey ... mine was simple to and I shall be celebrating (?) my Silver Wedding next weekend. We had a few more guests than 2 as we had my sons (it was my 2nd marriage) and what family we had at the time present, so we had a grand total of 10, including us, for the wedding and wedding lunch after. I did the big white thing first time round. Which did I prefer? The second one. Far more intimate and meaningful.
Anyway, here's the card I made to give to Cally and Gary to mark their anniversary. Picture isn't too good due to poor light but the card is actually a really crisp white and the golds are more vibrant. The quilted effect was created by scoring diagonally at half inch intervals using my ScorPal. I'm leaning back towards smaller cards. We made a lot of smaller cards during the House Party weekend and they were so effective .... and I'm finding it easier to come up with ideas for the smaller size. Strange how things go around.
