50th wedding anniversary explosion box

Hi all,

I've not posted for a while -- flew to Adelaide last weekend for my Aunt and Uncle's 50th wedding anniversary and am attending a Navy reunion for female aircraft maintainers on the south coast of NSW this weekend. We had such a lovely dinner last night and I the most wonderful time seeing all the "old gals"!

Here is the anniversary explosion box "card" I made for me Uncle and Aunt. I have to say I love making these. This one did take me a long time to make, but that is because I kept changing my mind on colours and designs etc... I even changed the pearls from white to cream at one stage.

I do not have my craft gear with me, but I am pretty sure the heart is from the Sweethearts cartridge (or Wedding?), and the 50th is from the Heritage cartridge. Butterflies are made with the beautiful wings Stampin' Up! emblosslit die.

Transport for the plane - good old Tupperware,
useful for so many things.

Well, I'd best get ready for the second half of the reunion weekend - a BBQ lunch.

Hope you are all having a great weekend too.
