Hello.  Welcome.  Did you know swans mate for life.  I thought this would make a suitable motif for a golden wedding anniversary card.

I started by cutting MME Ooh La La Over The Top paper with Cheery Lynn Tiny Bubbles Borders three times.  I backed them with yellow paper, added a hint of DI Dried Marigold and mounted the panel on gold glitter card.  I added some yellow stripy ribbon over the joints between the panels.  I added a layer of the same MME paper, distressed the edges and coloured with the Dried Marigold.  I cut Cheery Lynn Emperor Swan from gold mirror card and Cheery Lynn Wheat Heads from gold glitter card.   I didn't have an 'anniversary' sticker so it just reads Golden.
