40 years!

I was recently commissioned to make a wedding anniversary card for my friend to give to her parents who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year... how cool is that?!  

Here is what I came up with:

The image is a digi from The Greeting Farm and the papers are from October Afternoon.  The tag and the pins are from Maya Road and the buttons and lace are findings from our local emporium in Whangarei (what a treasure trove!).  I coloured the image with copics (see below for details).  The sentiment is made with alphabet rub ons and I have added glossy accents to the heart.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Joyful Stamper - Inspire me Fridays 4: Anything Goes
Paper Cutz - Challenge 89: Anything Goes
Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog - Glitter, Glamour and Glitz
Paper Crafting Journey - Challenge 9 Bling

Here are the copics I used:

Tomorrow we leave for Sydney to start our trip back to Italy.  Aahhhhh!  I haven't done nearly half as many of the things I wanted to get done and I don't feel we have had a real holiday yet.  I have also got far too much stuff to fit in my meagre 30 kg luggage allowance... I might have to leave some clothes behind and get more over there!

On the plus side, it will be lovely to see the family in Sydney again and get to meet our niece again!

OH no! Thought the 30kg would be enough chica! Hope the addition of those few goodies I sent were not a hassle. I had to leave a bag behind at the Sofitel to board my Alitalia flights... and just scraped in, still at 30kg!
L has taken our wee chick for a walk which he does most days and they love the boy bonding it seems.
Have a lovely time in Sydney before you head off on your big trek.
