Happy 45th Banner

My parents are celebrating 45 years of marriage this July 2nd. I made this banner for the party my sister and I are having for them. It is hard to see in the full view so below is a close up of each section

I embellished each section individually and differently. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I used the Pennat die from Stampin Up.

and various other die cuts. The lace doily is a nestability. The letter are also Stampin Up dies.

The flowers and leaves are from I Am Roses. I had a few things that messed up but hopefully no one will notice but me.

I tried to use embellishement that were sybollic of commitment and lasting love through the years.

I added one plain section for a spacer.

I made one huge boo boo. I thought the color for 45 years was ruby...but it is sapphire blue and I was not going to make a new banner. So hopefully no one will be the wiser...oh my!
