Golden Wedding

This is the card I made for my husband's Aunt and Uncle, Vic and Vina, who celebrated their golden wedding over the weekend - 50 years, isn't that amazing - congratulations!!
My papers are from a Marianne pad, Vintage Rose, I think, then I've used a lot of Frantage, old lace and distressing so that it looked like it was 50 years old!!
I also decorated a box for it, one purchased from Tracy Payne some time ago, check them out here - she has two sizes to choose from and it makes it so easy to present your card as a keepsake.
I've used several dies, including a Sizzix doily die to frame the image, an Anja corner die by Marianne, and a heart die from Magnolia.  The photo stamp just peeking out by the angel is from Lili of the Valley and the little angel was a present from my daughter, Em, from when she travelled round Europe last year.
Huge congratulations  Vic and Vina!!
