14 years of marriage

My baby brother and sister in law will have been married 14 years this October so I thought I would use the traditional colours or gift as inspiration, only to find that traditionally its not that significant but modern wise the traditional colours are ivory and gold so that's what I went with.                                                                                                                                                                                                            I decided to use this cute image from sugar nellie and used pastal browns, peaches and lemon/creams promarkers to colour with a little sakura gel for the strings on the boxes.
I used ivory card stock for the base and for the image layer which I fussy cut and also for the sentiment which is from LOTV. The gold is gold vellum I found at a computer fair I went to with my hubby years ago and it has been rolled up in the corner of my craft room since then. The image base layer I cut with spellbinders and the vellum I drew around the die to get the wavy edge. The front of the card I finished with some ivory ribbon tied in a bow.

sorry about the shocking pink line down the piccy side not sure where its come from or whether it will show when this post is published.
The base of the card has the same layers with an extra smaller die cue layer with a sentiment from CC designs again dressed with ivory hand tied bow and flowers and an ivory rose.

I made the two ovals into an easel card and the flowers are the stop all I can do now is hope my sis in law likes the card but I guess as they live a couple of hundred miles away so they will receive the card by post and they aren't the kind that say thanks for cards etc but at least I know I made an effort.
