Papertrey Ink Ruby Wedding Card - 40th Wedding Anniversary card

Hello everyone,

I think my craft mojo is still on holiday but as I had to make a 40th Anniversary card for some dear friends, I came up with this one:-

I used some Sue Wilson Noble Classic dies for the die cut and debossed frame, and Papertrey Ink Limitless Layers Heart dies for the focal panel. The heart and flowers were stamped with PTI 'With All My Heart' stamps and the sentiment is PTI Think Big Favorites #24

I love multi step stamps like this which allow you to build up the design with different colours, and I have to say that this is my go to stamp set for anniversary cards. The Scarlet Jewel card and ink is also perfect for a 'ruby' anniversary. I used some very old but NBUS glitter glaze on the leaves, but I have to say I prefer my Wink of Stella brush pen. The glitter glaze had to be put on with a paint brush and I foolishly thought it would wash out - turns out I now need a new paint brush!

I'd like to play along with
