Silver Wedding Anniversary Card

A friend and her husband have just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary but I will give her their card tomorrow as she's been off - just hope she doesn't look at my blog tonight!!!  My husband and I are a "baby anniversary" tomorrow compared to my friend as it's our 20th wedding anniversary.
I have used one of my favourite images from Joanna Sheen's Dancing With Shadows CD.  I love this image and I think it's perfect for an occasion just like this.  I um'd and ah'd with using some backing paper but decided against it and instead used some peel-offs, sentiment off the computer (printed in silver of course), personalised insert and handmade flowers made with Nesties dies, coloured with promarkers, scrunched up, Cosmic Shimmer glitter glue rubbed in with my fingers (yes, it must be a good friend as I don't normally do messy) and finished with brads which I've had for ages and ages and ages.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Challenge - Anything goes
Digi Doodle - Make your own flowers
Pattie's Creations - Glitter or bling
Sew Many Challenges - Glitter
One Stitch at a Time - Flowers
Whoopsi Daisy - Let's sparkle and shine
Craft Your Passion - Text it
Tuesday Throwdown - Something metallic - metal brads for me
