50th Charter Card

So much for retirement!  I've worked every day this week as a supply teacher, which is most unusual!  I love teaching really, especially in Reception (four and five year olds).  Yesterday we were finger painting autumn trees and today we were covered in glitter, making cards. Bliss!!  However, I thought I had all week to make a special card to celebrate the  50th Charter of my local Ladies Circle, but things never work out as planned!  Ladies Circle was formed originally for the wives of Round Table, but these days have open membership.  So, tonight I eventually finished the card needed for this weekend.
I included the logo on the card in gold and also used turquoise, the colour of the modern badge. The champagne glasses were die cut with a Sizzix die and attached with foam pads.  I added some sparkly bubbles and turquoise pearls.  I managed to find a snippet of yellowy gold card which was big enough for what I needed, so I'll pop over to the Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge - Week 146 .


  1. Super celebratory card Liz, great colour scheme. I hope you have a good weekend.

  7. What a fun card to celebrate the 50th Charter. Cute logo and fun colors together. I love how you made the bubbles. This is a card you could use for weddings, birthdays or even New Year's Eve. Great idea.
