An Unorthadox Choice for a Pearl Wedding Anniversary....!

It is my parents 30th wedding anniversary on the 29th March and so I thought I had better make a card. Unfortunately, when I started riffling through my craft supplies, I realised that I had absolutely nothing suitable. Starting to panic, I sat scrolling through ideas on the net but all this did was make me long for a Cuttlebug even more as I saw loads of fab ideas centred around the embossing plates! My boyfriend then gave me a talking to and reliably informed me that I was looking at the problem from the wrong angle! He reminded me that my parents wouldn't necessarily expect a 'traditional' card from me and that as I was a bright and colourful person, my card should reflect that.

What a wise man?!

Anyway....the talking to did me a world of good and I immediately came up with this design. I know it isn't perhaps what you'd expect of a 30th wedding anniversary card but hey, I like it anyway!
