Calligraphy Flourish Friday - 50th Anniversary

Hello friends.  I hope you've had a good week.  
Last month Tom and I were treated to lunch by Bill Lilly and his wife, Sandy. They mentioned they had just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  I made a little card for them to commemorate such a special milestone. Since it was their GOLDEN anniversary, it was the perfect opportunity to practice my illuminating skills.  I used Instacoll, 23K patent gold leaf, and my notes from Harvest Crittenden and Rosemary Buczek.  

I want to thank my sister for giving me this drying rack which she had rescued. It certainly came in handy this past week. :)

Thank you for visiting. Best wishes for a wonderful weekend.
Go forth and flourish!
