Fields of Gold

This was a fun card to do because it's so different from anything I've done. Since it's for my friend's husband I had to refrain from glitters, frilly flowers and anything else that would make it too girly and that wasn't easy!  I did have to add the little blue flowers because they were the wild flowers along the banks of the lake where they got married.  The flowers are made with three different punches. The pictures were reduced to 2.5" and printed on vellum and mounted on white cardstock so that they look soft instead of the glossy glare of a regular picture.  If you click on the picture of the card, you can see the little photos better.  The flourishes are a Memory Box die and the background is the last line of their song "Fields of Gold" printed on Bashful Blue in gold ink.  The card had to be 5.5" x 8.5" to fit all that on it.

The inside of the card has the entire song lyrics on the left side and a few more pictures of the park where they walk a lot and where they got married. I don't think you can get a more personalized anniversary card anywhere!  So romantic!  
Thanks for visiting!
