Anniversary creation.

Well i have decided to take a big step back from design team work, I  have left the lovely  Aunty Sue in charge at Crafty Catz, the girls are a fab bunch very supportive, i will miss them all. Sad day but my heart  and soul is no longer there as it used to be for some reason.  I'm not sure if I'm keeping my lovely blog going but for now I would like to share a card made for a golden wedding Anniversary.
Most of this card is made from Crafters companion products
love the backing card, very elegant i think.
thanks for your visit, hopefully i will decide to continue with blogging and still get to see all the lovely creations and inspiration in blog land,
