Oldie for FFriday

Hello All and Happy Easter. What are you all up to this week end. Yesterday's weather was glorious, very Spring like and quite warm when out of the wind. My oldie(s) inspired by Erika at Snappycrafts is a card I made about two years ago. Actually I ought to get this die out again and use more often with a revamp using dies that I have bought after this e.g. Spellbinders - Marissa's Bouquet, Tonic -Swirls, because it is a beautiful effective die that doesn't need a lot of extra embellishments. The top card is a 4x6 card blank, Becca Feakin Filigree Delights, Lidll card stock, Spellbinders - D Lites Bitty Blossoms, gold bling from Mei Flowers. The second card used the die in both orientations to make a square card. for a Polish couple celebrating their first (paper) wedding anniversary. Apparently their wedding had a pale yellow theme. This time I used a Tonic Petal Pairs punch. Fortunately I work with a girl from Poland who was able to do the translation for me. I'm going to my aunt's Golden wedding party tonight and to my sister in law's tomorrow for a sumptuous roast dinner. OH is working today and on Monday - happy days,  no cooking and more crafting!
