50th anniversary in a hurry

Good morning everyone, and what a foggy start we have to the day here near Derby! I hope all is well in your world...hugs.

I had a phone call from my boss at work, "please Jackie, could you do me a big favour?" Less than 24 hours notice for a 50th anniversary card for her parents!!! I knew I had a gold rose photograph but I had to find it! Luckily, there it was, sitting in the rose folder within my flower folders. Thank goodness I have them all organised on my external hard drive! I couldn't believe it was 2007 when I took the photograph, OMG where did those nearly 8 years go to so quickly?

Just in case you are wondering so why last minute, she had tried to buy one from work and we didn't have any in so she was in a panic!!!!!

Anyhow, enough waffle, here is the card and thank goodness she loved it!

My usual white linencard, folded and cut to 7x5 for the base card.
I feathered the rose in PSP7 and added the sentiment using Vivaldi font, then printed it onto the same card, then cut with Spellbinders pierced die and popped it with sticky foam strips. 
Clear gems from stash coloured with Copic marker :o)

Just beautiful! Jackie to the rescue and this isn't the first time....haha. Don't you just love it when you have file correctly and you can find what you are looking for in just minutes! I do my best but sometimes a file image can slip by and be put in a strange file. I'll scratch my head and think "what was I thinking"? At the moment I'm sure it made sense. I have no roses in my new yard so I'll just enjoy all your beautiful photographs!
