Card for Chris and Gill

My husband and I have been invited to a party this evening to celebrate some friends 30 years of being together. So I've put this one-layer card together and managed to enter a challenge too! At Less Is More this week they are looking for 'Hardware' and I've made the little 'balloon'  from a metal heart, some very thin wire and a few beads.

I used the 'Congratulations' sentiment from Sassy Salutations, stamped in purple to match the bead, as it seemed the most appropriate. Lots of lovely white space, but I couldn't take a photo without the shadows, which is a bit disappointing. With a bottle of something fizzy and this card I think we'll be welcome at the party!


  1. Have a great time, I'm sure this lovely card will be well received!
    Thanks so much
