Golden wedding acceptance

One of Len's relatives and his wife will be celebrating their Golden Wedding shortly and this is the little note I made to accept their invitation to a party:
I used:

- 4" x 4" square cream linen card stock

- a ready made topper (dating from the year 'dot' but wire and hessian is back in fashion so am glad I hung onto it) layered onto a snippet of matt gold card

- Elzybells sentiment, stamped in gold onto a snippet of cream card and punched with SU's 'Petite Curly Label' punch

- round and heart shaped Josy Rose nail heads

Now I just have to think about making them a card to take with us on the big day. Now that's the sort of project I like, hearts :)

Missing WOYWW again this week - but I have a great excuse. Am meeting up with Queen Julia, Lunch Lady Jan and Annie (Wipso) today - wahoo!

Oh, and my LIM card yesterday was accepted by Chrissie as one layer - no naughty step for me :)
