Are we not like two volumes of one book?

I’ve a special card to show today featuring the sweet Jack and Ginger from Mo’s Digital Pencil.

This card is for a 65th wedding anniversary and was commissioned by my mother for a couple who have been customers at the café my mum works at for years.  I actually don’t know what they look like but this image was just too lovely not to use.

I looked up 65th wedding anniversaries and found they are a sapphire one so have chosen blue tones for my card and added in a Tim Holtz’s Facet I coloured blue.  I cut the 65 from Tim’s Apothecary Remnant Rubs, the only ones I own that have a white sheet as well as the black.  I thought the sentiment from the Small Talk stickers was just perfect for a couple who have been together for over 65 years, especially as they are still so happy they are off on a cruise to celebrate their anniversary.

My card follows the current sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  I managed to cut my layers the wrong size but only realised when I had already stuck the odd sized one down so just had to roll with it.  I wanted a lovely vintage feel to the card and I’ve distressed all my layers so I am also entering this in the current challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.  As I’ve used lots of lovely I Am Roses roses as my floral embellie I am linking this up in their current challenge.
