A Ruby Anniversary Card

Todays card is a rather belated Ruby Anniversary card, as I wasnt aware that a couple of friends of mine had already celebrated it, but I thought Id try and make up for that and get one ready to take around to her house later today.

This card has been made with the Glitter Girls Bookoftricks embossing board, I have embossed three different sizes, firstly in a red mirri board that has a heart pattern on it, the second layer is a silver mirri board one, and the third layer is a white card one. I have stuck a silver border around all the embossed edges, and stuck corners on as well. The top layer has also got further silver boarders down the centre with a silver leaf design as well.

I then stamped the greeting to the left hand side, and created a heart topper for the right side with one of their large heart peel offs, stuck onto red mirri board. Ive then stuck some flowers onto this heart with some silcone glue, left it to dry and then mounted onto the card with some foam tape. The final thing I have done is stuck some heart gems onto a embossed heart pattern Id embossed down the side.
I also created a box for the card, from some silver and red holographic card.

Hi Shirley, just popped in to say how much I appreciate you support and kind comments the last week, it's really helped me feel better.

Sorry things still not too good with your daughter, but she may well get off that frame - I had three years in a wheelchair, but it's been in the shed for the last three so just goes to show anythings possible.
