Commissioned 8x8 50th anniversary

Good morning Bloggers, I hope that all is well in your world...hugs

What a wild, wet and miserable day we had yesterday, started off sunny then degenerated rapidly with horizontal rain and gales!  :o(  At least it seems to have calmed down this morning so far.

 On to my card for today. I was asked to make a large Golden wedding anniversary card and it was left to me what I did, the only brief being it must be simple, so here it is, and I am pleased to say my customer was delighted with it, thank goodness :o)

 I used a Papermania 8x8 card blank for this one.
I was given and old wedding photograph of the couple, and it was do faded and had lots of marks all over it, so I had a go at cleaning it up in PSP7 then feathering what I had left to get rid of everyone else!
I cut the photograph and gold mat with Spellbinders dies.
The rose (same rose used twice) is my own photograph beautifully tubed by my very good friend Pat (PatEssex on DC) And the sentiment is computer generated.

Inside, I used the same layout with the roses, and the verse is computer generated. 
Not mush else can be said about it really, simple was what they wanted and simple was what they got :o)
