Diamonds are forever...

This card is for a couple who will be celebrating their Diamond wedding anniversary, how special is that! I used this lovely magnolia couple that the lovely Jane sent me. perfect for an anniversary! The papers are all K & Co. the flowers are punched using 3 different punches
in matching papers, finished with coloured gems. The papers are all stitched and the lovely bit of lace is from my lovely teamie Tracy, thanks a bunch, nearly didn't want to use it cause its that nice. I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Magnolia Down Under - followed their lovely sketch
2. Roses on Paper - punch it
3. Quirky crafts - flowers
