Cause for Celebration

Well thank goodness Monday is almost over, and I mean that most sincerely folks - it has been dreadful!  I won't bore you with details but it started with my bus being 50 minutes late (actually, that is 4 buses missing) this morning and it went rapidly downhill from there.

Anyhoo, I popped on with a happy card to share with you.  This was made for an order from one of my colleagues who asked for a 60th wedding anniversary card for her parents, with a ballroom dancing theme.

So I have used
LOTV stamp - The Charleston
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are all First Edition, so got the diamonds in there for 60th
The beautiful lattice border die is Cheery Lynn Lattice Valance Border
And the numbers are Memory Box Typewriter (large)
I did decorate the inside too but forgot to take a photo (numpty)

Made a bit of a boo-boo when I bought the Cheery Lynn die - I bought it on impulse when I was shopping for other stuff, and didn't really study the details too closely, so imagine my horror when it arrived and I discovered that it is a 7.5 inch die!!  That is so not going to fit on a 6x6 card base.  But it fitted this 8x8 with style and I am kinda pleased, because it means I shall have to save it for extra-special celebration cards!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I wondered about that die, it seemed so large yet fit your card nicely. This is a sweetly elegant card. I'm sure your friend and her parents will be thrilled with it.
