Happy 35th Anniversary Mum And Dad

Good morning everyone I just wanted to share this anniversary card that I made for my mum and dad I gave it to them yesterday and they loved it they have been married for 35 years now and I think that its amazing.
I do apologise for the net curtains but my camera has a mind of its own and this was the only place I could take the picture without leaving the flat in my pjs lol.
I have used 2 whiff of Joy stamps from the city girls collection and masked them.I have coloured using promarkers and then added glitter and distressed the edges with distress ink.Other products used are DCWV cardstock,Martha Stewart heart doily punch,Marianne dies swirl,shapeabilities fancy tags,pearls,roses and a greeting from the occasssions stamp set by crafters companion.
