Diamond Wedding Card

I've just had a wonderful weekend away on a Cross Stitch Guild break in Bradford - a lovely hotel, great company and even a bit of stitching too!  

This is a card I made last week after I was asked for a diamond wedding anniversary card.  It's something I hadn't made before and I have to admit it did take me a little while to decide what to do!  In the end I made a Bookatrix card using the Glitter Girls board.  I've used white pearl and also some pale pearl patterned card for the layers and then printed the sentiment on pearl paper and die cut it.  To make the number on the other side I printed '60' in draft and then put small self adhesive clear gems over the top.  I finished it off with some white sheer ribbon and some more self adhesive gems and then made a matching box.

I'd like to enter the card in the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - 'bling it on'
Paper Play Challenges - 'summer loving'
Moving Along With the Times - 'celebrate - no birthdays'
Simply Create Too - 'wedding or love'
Delicious Doodles - 'diamonds are forever'
Love to Create - 'add a sentiment'
