Memories In Tyme  Blog Hop

Welcome to the Memories in Tyme blog hops - where you will find some seriously talented people who love to share their ideas with you! Our hop today and is anything relating to Weddings or Anniversaries - doesn’t matter if it is a layout, card, mini album, or decorating item, if it’s about getting married…it’ll be here!!! June is one of the busiest times to get married - why not get started a bit earlier this year with ideas you will find from our blog hop!

Now, if you just happened upon my blog, then please go back to the beginning which is at Lynda’s blog ( Besides, the beginning is always the best anyway!!!

Let’s get started with the ideas....
This card was created to help my friends celebrate their 20th Anniversary/ The colors are all soft ivory with touches of gold and silver glitter. The card stock is ivory with an overlay of patterned vellum with a punched MS edge. The white silk cording was given to me by my neighbor who was throwing out some fabric & yarns...what a lucky bunch of stuff! The embossing on the cake layers was Sizzix and Cuttlebug combined. The 20th year was created with Nestabilities layers and edged in light brown.
Happy Anniversary couple

This was created since I couldn't fit it in an envelope!!! I was so excited to make it, that I think I'll be doing these from now on when I don't have to mail the card!
