Golden celebrations

Photo is a bit crooked, had to balance on my remote to get a good angle for the light as I can't get outside with the wretched rain! Its for a couple celebrating their golden anniversary. I got some new papers from Nitwits today and I absolutely love them! The sentiments are handwritten and everything has been glittered.
Images - Magnolia Tilda and Edwin
Papers - digi papers from Nitwits
Embellishments - nitwits
Medium - pencils and sansodor
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Truly Scrumptious - followed their sketch and used buttons
2. Anything goes challenge - three layers
3. Pear Tree Designs - best wishes
4. Magnolia Down Under - use Tilda and Edwin
5. Sweet Stampin Challenge - use favourite image
6. Ellephantastic - shabby chic

Hi Pinky, this is gorgeous, love it, there looks to be alot of work gone into this one.

if only there was a quick and cheap way of getting our cards photographed it would make his blogging lark much easier, I seem to spend ages taking a photo that looks anything like any good.
back soon hugs chris xx
