Wedding Anniversary

Morning and I have an anniversary card I made for my Son to give to DIL for their 10th anniversary using a photo from their wedding day.The B.paper is Tattered Lace,flowers were made with Tattered Lace die,the stamped and embossed ones were stamped on vellum,Joanna Sheen Ivy flourish die,ribbon and pearls from stash,sentiment was computer generated using font from Dafont and cardstock from Papermill Direct.My son has just come out of hospital after a knee operation he has been waiting for for about three years-they cut a 12 mm piece of bone out of his knee and put in a wedge-6 weeks of mon weight bearing and about 6 months before anywhere back to normal-he is in agony and on morphine but at least back home.
