Diamond Wedding

One of my colleagues asked for a Diamond Wedding card for her parents. Her only suggestions were 'not cute or cuddly and a bit religious'.
This is what I came up with...
 The background was made using Inkylicious lattice background and pearl embossing powder. at the corner of each diamond I added diamond stickles. The church is from a Hobby Art Scene it set, coloured with distress markers and stamped onto a nestie dusted with tea dye distress ink. The sentiment was computer generated.
Here is a close-up of that background

Many thanks for all the lovely comments I have received recently. One day soon I will hopefully get a bit of time to have a good look around blog land, but I need to get next week out of the way first. I have my class parents evenings on Monday and Wednesday, a twilight course till six on Tuesday and Meg's parent's evening on Thursday! That is a lot of talking!!!
Have a good week, everyone and thanks for looking!

Take care midst all that going on. Your card certainly fits the brief & is very striking indeed. Tasteful & elegant. I love the way those little clusters of flowers provide subtle interest too.

This is stunning Sally, I'm sure that the happy couple will love this. I've just made 6 Golden Wedding cards for the same couple, all different, that took some thinking.

This is beautiful, Sally. I should think your friend was delighted with it. It's so hard making a card to order isn't it, I never know whether my taste will be their's and end up making several!!!!!
Hope you get through your busy week without losing your voice, it sounds hectic!!
