E is for Easel

Hello, as promised Im back with the Golden Wedding boxed card that's taken me several days to make.  
This is the box, Ive decorated it with Sizzix tattered flower, Marianne leaves, seed pearls and some coiled gold wire.  The design Ive used for the box is Elegance by Pink Petticoat in gold.

The light is playing hard to get these past two days so please forgive the unflattering kitchen tiles and grouting!
Here is the card, it's my favourite 6" easel style and Ive layered white and gold on the base of it for the greeting to be written on.
Ive used French Script in gold in both the positive and the negative.  Ive distressed the edges of the sentiment plate with a gold brilliance ink pad.  The blooms are the same as the box along with the fancy hearts being from a new spellbinders set.

Aren't they just a model looking couple!  I think they look stunning, so serene and happy.  Ive really enjoyed making this for my sister to give to her in laws on their special day.  Unless I can add two marriages together, I wont be making it to a golden anniversary myself but at least Ive now got the right 'one' and thats all that counts!
I'd like to enter this into The ABC Challenge as it is E for Easel!

I hope you like it!

wow Keryn! That is beautiful. They will adore that. It's such a lovely keepsake too. The box is so pretty.
There is no way i'll get to a 50th anniversary unless i get married very soon and live to a ripe old age. Its a shame that there will be a lot less of them when i'm an old lady. Although finding the right one is far more important!
