Golden Wedding Card and Box

Good morning everyone I hope that all my lovely friends and followers are doing well.Sending Special Get Well wishes to my follower Debra who is not too good at the moment hope you are getting a little better every day.
I've had quite a busy week at the weekend my cousins son and his fiancée asked if I would do the wedding invites for their December wedding Its going to be on the 22nd December which just happens to be my birthday isn't that lovely. So most of the week I've been sourcing products to make the samples of the design they like its going OK no doubt in time they will appear on my blog.
The card today is a Golden Wedding card and is a commission. I used some lovely Ruby Rock It paper called Arcadia for the backing and used a computer sentiment. I want to thank my follower Pam for the inspiration for the beaded flowers and the sentiment design.



 
 
The paper is a very pale gold but not shown up that well in the photo although the other elements have. Strange how some things don't like the camera.
