Golden Years

I’ve finally finished another card that I’ve been working on, but not before I realized I’d made a fundamental error with it and had to do a quick alteration this morning.

As you can see, it’s a Golden Wedding Anniversary card that’s intended for some friends of my brother.

It was only while I was blog hopping for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday   that I saw another Golden Wedding card made by Lisa.   I commented that she had used a die that was very similar to the one that I was using on my card and that was when I realized my mistake.  Stupid me had put a 60 in the centre as opposed to the 50 that it should have been….........I ask you........what a numb skull!

All I can say is a big thank you to Lisa for making her card because if she hadn’t I’m not sure I would have noticed my error and it would have been really embarrassing, especially if my brother didn’t notice it either. Anyway, it’s done now.

I’ve used up quite a few Peel-Off corners which I’m a big fan of as it goes. I know Peel-Off get a lot of bad press but I find the corners and borders so useful and the occasional butterfly too, like the one on my card from yesterday.

I’m entering my card into the following challenges:-

UnstampaBells Challenges -  Celebrations

The Craft Place  - Anything Goes

I think this one is ok because my card is the same as the sketch but obviously you can't see the top bit because of the way it's folded.

That's what friends are for, Sue. It's an easy mistake to make, all these special anniversaries can get a bit confusing. It's only that I've done several in the last few years that I didn't have to check. I'm glad I helped anyway.
Your card is stunning, I love the roses and yes, we did use similar dies. I have that one too!!!! but I'd already cut out two of the other one for something else so just decided to put them together.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Hugs Lisax

Beautiful card, that die you have used behind the '50' is so fine and delicate. Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles.

Fabulous card and I am sure the recipients will love it and your brother will be very grateful! Love those corners - they give it such a rich look. Thanks for entering this in the Unstampballes Celebration Challenge.

Hey we all make mistakes from time to time. This is beautiful and although I am not a fan of peel offs these corners are gorgeous..... I thought they were a new die I hadn't seen and needed!!! Thank you for joining us at That Craft Place.

I really love the flowers you've used. Thee peel-offs look great in the corners. Thanks for playing at UnstampaBelles.
