Triple Celebration Card

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Last weekend we received an invitation to a multi function celebration event.  Obviously I needed to create a  card to fit the bill.  The celebration is to cover

25th Wedding Anniversary
65th Birthday (female)
Retirement (Male)

Some ask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After some thinking this is what I came up with, it was lovely to create last weekend whilst Matt was fishing :)
Looks quite normal and I thought could be to celebrate anything.
When I went to Grimsby Crafts sale the other week, I was lucky enough to find a gorgeous paper stack that contained beautiful papers, so I used these. I contrasted with black, added the black ribbon to tie at the side.  Lots of little pearls, lots more little bling diamant√©  a few butterflies, a tag and some flowers and foliage. I used liquid pearls down the butterfly bodies.

Here are some more images
The front being the celebration image, the inner back panel for the signing bit and the remaining panels to add a sentiment for each occasion individually. The first one they will see is the Anniversary sentiment, all sentiments are computer generated and have been edged with TH distress ink, however the Tattered Rose was too pinky for the papers, so I mixed this with the Mulled Lavender to get a match of colour for the papers.

The left panel inside is for the 65th Birthday

and the right hand panel inside for the Retirement

The image is one of my very old wooden ones and I stamped this, coloured it with copics, Atyou for the ribbon, stickles for the bubbles and glossy accents for the liquid (although you cannot see the lovely shine on the wine)

I made a box to match and overall love how it turned out, I hope they like it.
