Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!

I loved that song from a few years back - will have to go on You U-Tube & have a listen for it! It always reminds me of a little girl called Ruby who I used to look after in creche. She however is now at school & this story has little to do with my card!

The ruby tie on this occasion is for a Ruby Wedding celebration for my next-door neighbours, who are currently off to Hong Kong, Thailand, & Phuket to celebrate their 40 years of marriage along with their 60th Birthdays this year - quite a holiday & quite a lot of celebrations!

My card uses a lovely PB stamp called Daisy Chime, the card is Bazzill Basic and has a polka dot through it although that probably doesn't show in the photo. I would have liked more papers, but couldn't get anything wedding/ruby to tie in, so instead I went for a CAS design with lovely flowers to decorate. (Cut using my Die-namics Prima die)
