One year on...

Digital Kit- Maelia Designs, Mon Petit Jardin
Last weekend it was a year since my son got married.  I decided to make a bit of a hybrid wedding anniversary card for them.  I had made the digital layouts not long after the wedding and thought they would be ideal to downsize into a card and add a few 'real' flowers to give a bit of 3D texture.

Digital Kit - MLE Card, Tealicious.

On the inside left I added this Wedding Cake Recipe layout with some buttons, the text reads:
Wedding Cake Recipe:
1/2 lb good looks
1lb sweet temper
1lb butter of youth
1lb blindness of faults
1lb of wit
1lb good humour
2lb of sweet argument
1 pint of rippling laughter
1 wine glass of common sense
a dash of modesty

Put the love good looks and a sweet temper into a well furnished house.
Beat the butter of youth into a cream,
and mix well together with the blindness of faults.
Stir the wit and good humour into the sweet argument
then add the rippling laughter and common sense.
Work the whole thing together until everything is well mixed,
and bake gently forever.

and finally on the back of the card  I made this layout showing them as the family they have become.
