60th WAnarrow
Aaaaaha the weekend - isn't it lovely:-)))
Popping in today to share a few recent cards.
My mum asked me to make a couple of cards for her - one for her male cousin who's turning 80 and another for him and his wife celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary.
Two momentous occasions that deserve special handmade cards I'm sure you'll agree;-)
First up, the anniversary card -

I used this awesome stencil with texture paste to create the rays. 
Die cut numbers are from Papertrey Ink.
