An Anniversary Card with a Difference ...

Hello there everyone ... welcome to my blog.  Hope you are all having a great day.
I've been away for a little while and, strangely enough, I'm having trouble getting back into the swing of things, but I would like to share a card with you.  
My son and his wife celebrated their 20th Wedding Anniversary last week and this is the card I made for them.
 As you can see by the title of this post this is a card with a difference and that difference is that it is almost a Mini Album.  I decided to put a few photo mats inside so they could take some photos of their celebrations and use the card as a keepsake.  
 It also has a few journaling cards in there as well.
The papers used are a mix from Kaisercraft's 6 x 6 Curiosity Paper Pad and also some 12 x 12 pages from their Vintage Timeless Collection.  I have also included some stickers and tags from G45's Romantique Collection.  All the papers were distressed around the edges and then inked with Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
Made some quarter circle pockets and edged them with a strips of pearls and also did a little stamping with a Kaisercraft Stamp.
The small bling hearts are actually from Office Works!!

 Made two pocket pages and two photo mats and also added a few butterfly strips from G45.
The sentiment was printed on a sheet of paper from Kaisercraft but I'm not sure which collection it is from.  I  then cut the tag shape out on my Cuttle Bug, embossed the edge and painted that with gold.
Here is a close-up of the flower cluster on the front.   The large flower is from Prima and the small roses are from Kaisercraft.  Added some gauze and a few stamens too.
  I also added a few strips of music washi tape.
For the closure I simply cut the shape out of cardstock by hand added the extra layers with the greeting and glued it down to the front at one end.  I've  used a small piece of velcro to keep the card closed ...
and there you have it.  Not just a card, not really a Mini Album but, rather a mix of both.

Thank you so much for visiting and I would love it if you would take the time to leave a little comment to let me know what you think.
Take care and God Bless.
