Pearl anniversary card

Hi guys!

Last time I posted, we were still January, so let me give you an update on what I have been doing in the mean time! 
First of all, I went to New York - and I got to celebrate my birthday there! Needless to say, it was an experience I will not quickly forget! I also went to Berlin in the Easter break, which was an amazing trip as well and I got to know some great people. Besides traveling - I did not spend four months constantly on holiday, rest assured - I mostly worked very hard on my master's thesis, which is handed in and already defended, hurray!

I did a bit of sewing too, and I'm hoping the weather will get better so I can take decent pictures to share here...
Now, let me show you a card I made recently for a couple's 30 year anniversary. As the symbol for 30 years is pearl, I wanted to include that in the design. The 'mr & mrs' is a free Silhouette file from a while ago, not free anymore now, but still available in the store. The scalloped background was painted with watercolours, and I splattered it as well, though it is hard to see in the picture. The giant heart was cut from some sheer polyester fabric I have laying around.
