SUOC22 Anniversaries

We are celebrating anniversaries over at SU-Only Challenges today. I thought I would make a card that would be more fitting for a couple who have been married a long time, perhaps a 25th or 50th wedding anniversary?

I used the Mother of Pearl technique on the clock face. Hopefully this card doesn't give a depressing feeling of time passing by... I hope it spurs on joyful reminiscing about the wonderful years gone by.

Stamps: Sense of Time (retiring); Paper: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Newsprint DSP (retiring); Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Whisper White craft, Black Stazon; Accessories: White Frost shimmer paint, Plastic wrap, Sponges, Victoria lace, Pearl jewels, Circle punches, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Little Leaves die, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.

Thanks for stopping by!
