Diamond Wedding Wishes

Hi there,
Do you ever have one of those cards that start out simple, you think it will be easy(ish) in your head but yet it takes forever??? Well this card is one of those sort! I started with my (sadly neglected for too long) Medallion stamp, inking it with Platinum Shimmer Paint using a sponge dauber..
Then I moved onto making some pretty flowers except every time I let go of one of those little cuties it would be seem ok, I would turn round and up it had sprung...more glue, more holding, more sitting it under a punch! Lol! Obviously I need more patience?! Who? Moi?  I finished them off with a dab more shimmer paint.
Sentiment is computer generated and printed onto White Vellum Card stock, it is such good quality this vellum, so lovely and thick to use, I also added a few Stampin' Up! Basic Rhinestones to bling it up a bit,
and finally I added a little strip inside to finish it off,
Having said all that I am pleased with the final card, even if it did take a lot longer than anticipated ;-)
Do let me know what you think??
Thanks for stopping by today and listening to me babble on. I hope you have a great day whatever you are doing, especially if it involves ink and/or paper ;-) 
Stampin' Hugs,
