Passion for Papertrey challenge

Hello everyone and happy weekend to you. I'm being spoiled rotten this weekend because its my birthday tomorrow. My lovely husband and I went out for dinner last night and he cooked lunch today. I've spent nearly all day getting inky, flowers have been delivered and we're going to some friends for dinner tonight. Tomorrow my family are coming to spoil me some more and then on Monday its out to lunch with a girlfriend and then to some other friends for dinner. Phew, I'm so lucky but it's a good job it only comes once a year because my waistline cannot take the pace!

I'd like to share a card I made for Anne's Pearl Wedding anniversary. I met Anne through the Passion for Papertrey blog when she contacted me to see if I'd like to share orders from Papertrey Ink. Would I???  I nearly snapped her hand off and we have now had three orders delivered and have to restrain ourselves from going over the top and ordering too much.

I used pearlised card and paper as it was a pearl anniversary, and dry embossed the pretty flower with a Cuttlebug flower embossing folder. I used the PTI ric rac die to cut the ric rac and the Fillable frames 4 die and stamps for the sentiment mat. I hand cut the shadow mat in brown pearl paper and finished the card off by inking a little heart button and threading a little bow onto it.

I tried the card in a different colourway

but made it into a birthday card this time. This photo makes the navy card look almost black but I couldn't seem to get it looking right. Margaret C kindly gave me some advice with photo editing and I'm getting better at it but I seem to have a long way to go. I'm going to enter one of these cards to the current Passion for Papertrey challenge. Hope you are having as nice a weekend as I am, and thanks for looking.
