Pearl Anniversary

I have had an order for a Pearl anniversary card, which if possible I have to include - missing shorts, narrow boat captain, Proms in the Park , a Plaster jacket for the lady, a cottage in Solva (Llanelli), Picnic by the river, French bread/wine/mussells, Dolphins, and a caravan in France.  NOT much is it?

It has taken me all of Friday night, half of Saturday and most of Sunday, but I did it and the only things left off were the plastic jacket and the mussells. I didn't know what plastic jacket she meant and thought the mussells would be too small!!!!!.


The sketch I followed is named CS25H1

I have used a an A3 card in half, making the finished size A4, the shape I cut on my Cricut from the Straight from the Next cartridge, the grey celebration card I used for the back of the shape and the tags I have had for years, sorry don't know who by, the silver card is from Hobbycraft, the flowers are by Papermania, the ribbon was from PaperMill direct before they closed their shop, the pins are a win from Pink Paper Palace, the hearts are cut on the Cricut and embossed with the swirly folder by Cuttlebug, phew! that's a lot.

The "memories" are bits of digis I had from the net and from file, I have altered 2 slightly to fit the brief, the table and chairs, wine and bread are Frenchy by Olivia, man is Hunnybunny, I've hidden his pants underneath by making his shirt longer and the woman is Forgetful Freda both by Marlene at Squigglefly, the cottage is by Bird Cards.com, the caravan is one I have had for years, no name for it I'm afraid, with a background from PC HugBug.  Proms photos are from the BBC web site. Oh! yes and the pearls are from Papermania.  All coloured in PS.

I think that's all, if I have left anyone out, my apologies.  It has been, believe it or not a difficult card to work out and on.  I'm glad it's a one off!!!!!  now all I have to do is hope that she likes it.
