Anniversary Flowers!

I was asked to make a Diamond Wedding Anniversary card, and I thought - I've never made one of those!before!  This is a bit different for me, but really enjoyed making it  - and no stamping!
I used white pearl card, a nesti circle to cut the aperture from a slightly smaller piece of card, which I embossed the edges . The sentiment was computer, and  cut with a nesti and mounted onto a vellum doily cut with a Mariann die.  The flowers were punched and layered with 'diamond' centres.  The 60 was cut with the TH Vintage Die from mirri card. and 4 little 'diamond' hearts for the corners and voila!  I hope she likes it!
When I made it I thought I would enter it in Make My Monday - where the theme is 'white flowers', but when I checked - that was last week - where did that week go!!!

I am going to enter this card in
  Sisterhood of Crafters - May Flowers
  Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes
  I Brake for Challenges - Florals
  Bunny Zoes - Anything Goes
  Hooked on Crafts - Flowers
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Well that's it for now,  I  have a crafting day planned for tomorrow - yay!
