Anniversary wishes

Hello blogging friends on this glorious Sunday here in my part of the world.
Watched the rugby this morning and my 2nd team (NZ All Blacks) are through to the final next week, so that was a good start.
My card today was made for a couple celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. It is quite a simple card, based on one I saw some time back in blogland. Made a sketch at the time, but didn't make a note of the blog.

Used a white shimmer cardstock and punched the edges with fancy edge punch. Put a piece of the paper through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder for the centre triangle.
Sentiment ...Whiff of Joy punched out with a nestie and a peel-off 40.
Flourishes and flowers are cut with a Marianne design die, using the same shimmer paper and just coloured with distress ink pads.
A few pearls to finish

In my rush to get the photo before delivering the card, I forgot to show the inside, but never mind. The couple loved it.

 I am entering this in the following challenges:
Secret Crafter...White and one other colour
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the week ahead. Take care and have fun
