Silver anniversary card

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around for a week or so, I've been very busy making a project for my Mum and Dad's Silver Anniversary. I will share this with you another day as they have not received it yet, however they have received their card so I can share that today!

I made this card with the intention of it being quite CAS as I wanted it to be quite special for them.
I added Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and some punches from hobbycraft. I used pearlised card and was searching for hours looking for the right textured paper to go with it and voila I found a snippet of cream textured card in my snippets box!! I used it for the frame behind the sentiment and some of the flowers.

I topped it off with ribbons and pearls (the ribbon was straight by the way, I think it is the angle I took the photo from)!

My Mum and Dad went to Las Vegas for their Anniversary and saw Celine Dion live at Caesars Palace, I was very jealous as I am a big fan of hers! So glad they had an amazing time though. They took the card with them to Las Vegas (which I also made a box for on my hougie board so it didn't get squashed in their case!) and we video called each other when they opened it, they loved it so I was really pleased!

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Thank you for looking

Hi Laura

Re. tips for making a stepper card - I have to confess that for that particular one I cheated and used a pre-scored and cut one - bought from a shop :(

However, why not drop Sarn an email - she did a great tutorial for her card making class she runs, and did send me the instructions. Which I printed off...... and then deleted the email.

I have used her instructions with great success but probably best if you have them, plus the correct measurements direct from Sarn. Good luck!

Hugs, Di xx
