Happy 60th Mom & Dad!

Just had to do a post for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary today - congrats, Mom & Dad!! Since the 60th is the diamond anniversary, I cut a diamond shape and then 2 mats for the card base using the Silhouette (design by Jamie Koay). The beauty of the Silhouette is the ability to resize and reshape as desired - it this case, I elongated the diamond and mats from the original. I used clear embossing ink and sparkly embossing powder on the diamond shape. The banner and birdies are from Lawn Fawn (bannerific clear set) and the sentiment and #s are by Hero Arts. I hand lettered the "th" for the 60th. Here's the card:

Happy 60th

Besides sending happy wishes to my parents, I thank them for a loving home and for raising me and my siblings to be strong, independent people. Here's to many more years together!!
