A Wedding Anniversary Card

Hello every one, I hope you are all having a good week this far.

This week I took part in six challenges!
Totally Papercrafts - Distressing
Polka Doodles - Wedding theme.
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything goes!
 Abc challenge - Sparkle
At Totally Papercrafts you had to make a card using ''Distress''. Distress makes cards look old and I use it on all my cards on the sides of the paper - it just looks better.

Since I’m going to give this card to my grandparents for there 52nd wedding anniversary, I thought it would be good to make it look ‘old’ using much thicker distress.
Here is my card

And this is the Friday Sketchers Challenge layout by Beatrix.

This stamp I brought at Funky Kids and it is part of the Sugar Nellie Collection called ‘First Dance’.

I’ve cut out the 52 with my silhouette machine and then distressed it.

On the right hand side, I’ve put pearls on the ribbon. I love the effect it creates.

I wrote ‘Happy Wedding Anniversary’ on the tag.

Here I tore the paper and decorated it with distress and decorating chalk to give it an extra old look.

That is all for now.
Have a blessed weekend
