Champagne glasses anniversary card

I mentioned in my last post that I was off to see the Lion King with my friend Julie and that it was her wedding anniversary on the same day, well I made her a card and forgot to take it with me, which is typical of me! so I ended up having to drop it off the next day, I really am a numpty LOL!

The Lion King was spectacular and a definite must see, the costumes were stunning and the whole thing was awe-inspiring, we were only three rows from the stage and that close it was totally amazing.

Here's Julie's card, I kept it quite clean and simple as I was going for a more elegant look than my usual, in your face, bursting with colour look, so just used some different shades of white card, an embossing folder, border punch, champagne glass die and a tiny bit of ivory card.
