50th Wedding Anniversary ...


Something different today as it is my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary 
so it called for an extra special creation.
Regular followers of my blog will know I like to make paper aida and cross stitch.
I have more examples of my creations here
Pretty simple layout but many hours sewing, around 16 or so!

What have I used, well the aida is made on an Excel spreadsheet and then distressed 
Matted and layered onto satin gold card & Pink Petticoat printables.
Finished off with some ribbon, gems & flowers.

That is all from me today, be back tomorrow with
a new challenge for you.
Take care, x
