Anniversary card with Bud Basics

Yes this is a simple card but conveys the message that I have for my parents. I am sure they will love it and that is the main thing!

I have used all sorts of things here - have stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves from a Stampin' Up! set called Bud Basics and placed a faux jewel in their centres. The Congratulations wording is a Lucys stamp which I have stamped and embossed in black. The hearts have been punched out of card that has been run through the Cuttlebug embossing folder. For the 60th, I used my Cricut to cut out the numbers and the th is just letter stickers!

Finally I pierced holes around the edge and stitched with green embroidery thread adding a bead to every second stitch. Hmmmmm think that is all.

Jean your Mum & Dad will just love this card - it is beautiful.
I'm so glad you said it was a 'simple' card cause I don't think I'd of guessed that as it sure doen't look or seem a 'simply' made card to me ... luv ... B

I really like this card Jean. I'm so tempted by the Bud Basics again after seeing you use it here.
