Golden Anniversary card


Before I give the "lowdown" on today's card I just want to say how lovely it was to meet so many really friendly crafters yesterday at the Kings Hall. We collected Jodie at the airport in the morning and dropped her off thinking she'll never make it through the day because she was so tired after punching in so many hours in the last week or two but when we arrived back later, there she was doing what she does best - smiling, chatting and,of course, demoing lovely flowers!
It was great to meet Mary who had come all the way from Donegal and was making the most of the day..
It was also a great pleasure to find Norma on the Crafters and Co stand. We could have chatted all day!
I couldn't believe it when I quite literally bumped into Peggy (Docrafts)....sorry if I almost mowed you down.. 
A big "Hello" to Liz and Marie whom I first met a couple of weeks ago at Paperworks in Dungannon - you two do get around!
I really must say how nice it was to have a chat with Leslie (Castlereagh)  - thank you so much for all the nice things you said!
Ok, the card...if any of you were watching Create and Craft or Ideal World on Tuesday night or Wednesday then you might recognise the die on this one as the Peony Window - one of the new set which I designed for Tonic Studios. I've die cut it in gold and made a shaker card from it with little gold hearts in behind the acetate. The embossing stands out really well on the gold card so I didn't use the coordinating stamp this time.
I've added two of the Floral circle die cuts and added gold flowers. The hearts at the top were made with the Multi Detail heart punch and the Classic Heart punch

The same die was used for the card I blogged a couple of days ago but I used the stamps on the silver one and used the frame vertically instead of horizontally.
