Happy Anniversary!

The symbol for 45 years of marriage is sapphire.  I found the nearest thing in colour in a Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock and added a handmade fimo button in the shape of a heart!.  The colour looks wonky in this photo but I can't retake as I have already given the card to my parents who celebrate their 45th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow.

I added cream flowers from prima and Hero Arts, Pearls and cream brads.  I would have preferred the chipboard numbers to be a different colour but simply didn't have time to change them... made this in a severe hurry!!!  Not necessarily as I would have wanted ... anyhow

Happy Anniversary to two wonderful parents.  Hope you have a great day.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
