Celebrating with Sparkle and Pink

Today's card is one I made for a member of our Crafting Bee who celebrated her silver wedding anniversary in June and to mark their special day Heather and Graham took themselves off to Las Vagas.  Heather loves pink and that comes out in her everyday life through her make up, clothes and accessories but also in her crafting and one of her other trademarks is glamour dust.  She's not happy until there is sparkle on her card so the anniversary cake card I made for them had both pink and sparkle on it for Heather.


The backing papers used were from the Nitwit Collection Val 'n Tine Too and the colour and theme were perfect for the occasion and were also a good match to Stampin' up's Melon Mambo card and Rose Red ribbon which were also used.  Glamour dust was added to the embossed swirls of the cake tiers.  The other craft items used to make this card can be found in these wedding cake and golden wedding cake postings.

The week before the anniversary Heather was unable to attend the Crafting Bee meet as she was getting ready for their holiday so some of us took the opportunity to make our anniversary cards for her and here are three of them.  Notice they are all pink and they all had glamour dust on them too although that might not show up.  There's one from me, one from Carol and one from Anne.

Thanks for reading today
