Ruby Ruby

Today my outlaws celebrate there 40th wedding anniversary
so I decided to make them an extra special card
It took quite a while to do all the roses but was worth the effort.
I mounted them onto a mountboard base, and attached the whole thing to a mini easel.
Each rose is inlaid with a ruby gem. and some rock candy stickles has been smooched about here and there too.
I just hope they like it.
I'm entering this in the May Monthly Challenge over @ Inspiration Journal, as there theme is 'Flowers'
***
I'm off to their party soon so I wish you all a happy bank holiday and i'll be back tomorrow with my Compendium challenge.

Oh my Nicky, that was certainly a labour of love but what a fabulous creation to end up with. I too am sure your 'outlaws' are going to love it ...... who wouldn't. Fancy making another one in November???? It's our 40th then ;o). Don't worry, I'm only kidding. Hope the party goes with a swing.

Have a good Bank Holiday weekend altogether Sweetie.
