Golden Wedding Bears

A little while ago, one of my bus buddies asked if I would make a Golden Wedding card for his parents.  I was thrilled that he had asked me, but then fear set in.  I've made a few Golden Wedding cards lately and find them a bit daunting.  Anyhoo, thankfully he gave me a steer and said "bears"!

After many weeks of tossing ideas around, I thought I had finally better get on with it before they celebrate their Diamond anniversary and this is what I made.






















Ingredients:
Stamped Images:  Lili of The Valley - Shall We Dance and Love Boat
Medium: Distress Inks (ReInkers) and H2Os
Papers  Prima Sun Kissed and Gold textured mirri card
Sentiment  Lili of the Valley Vintage Sentiments, 50 using Cuttlebug dies
Corners  Can't remember the make but they are big and worked well on the 8x8 card

We're taking my parents out for lunch today so I need to go and find something to wear that dad won't comment on, loudly, about how fat it makes me look (you've just got to love them).

Hugs Sxx

What a cutie card and images, love the background and corners, they'll be thrilled I'm sure.

I always had my Mum tell me I should wear a corset, she didn't have a belly like mine!!!!!!!! she told me this from the size 8 I was as a teenager to the size 20 I went to (in rebellion) I think. The only thing is she has gone a few years now bless her and I'm STILL fat!, rebellion lasts a long time me thinks LOL.

I LOVE this card. The bears are colored to perfection and it has a really beautiful romantic feel to it.You had me worried with all your moaning about it! T'is a stunner. I've taken to wearing 'boyfriend' jeans - you can't tell whether I'm fat or just have yards of material in my jeans. hehe! Hugs, Jayne xx

Romantic...if they don't like this they are 1) nuts or 2) wouldn't like anything even if the miri card were solid gold!!!
