FOSTV 30 - Silver Wedding Joy

Monday has rolled round again and this week the challenge at FOSTV is to make a joy fold card.  Now I have to say I needed a nudge to make one of these again but they make for something a little different and yet they are quite simple to do - yes I have given a link to the tutorial. really should play along this week as there is a cute set on offer to one lucky person called Tweet Blessings .   You can find the challenge as challenge 30 at FOSTV

My card uses another great MFP set called Mother's Magnolias.  I love this set.  I used the acrylic distress technique using silver coloured paint and some blue ink.  The magnolia was coloured with Copics.  I used a Spellbinders m-bossabilities folder for the background and a Martha Stewart border punch to give the lacy edge.

I made the card for Chris and Debbie who recently celebrated their Silver Wedding anniversary by hosting a dinner dance for about 200 people who had been closely involved with them over some period in their married life.  What a wonderful idea.

 I hope you give the challenge a go this week - we would love to see what you create.

Have a good week.
