CASology 125 - Silver



This week's CASology Cue Card is Silver!



There are so many ways to interpret this cue card, but I went with a Silver wedding anniversary.

From Wikipedia:

The historic origins of wedding anniversaries date back to the Holy Roman Empire, when husbands crowned their wives with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth

We're at 17 1/2 years - well on my way to my silver crown! Can't wait!

While I'm waiting, I cut the letters out with Memory Box Urban Lower Case alphabet and added some tiny stars. Then I started to try and get a good photo! Not easy to capture, especially with cloudy grey weather! Anyway, you get the idea!

Now it's your turn - which way will this Cue Card take you?

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT blogs for more silver inspiration!

Hi Ardyth, I really love your design. It's seriously clean and I am inspired to make something in that style. :) Thanks for dropping by at my site! Cheers!

A gorgeous and perfect example of CAS Ardyth! The delicate silver dit cut letters are gorgeous. We are hitting our crowning moment this coming August! Yirkes I will have to tell people that I got married at 4 to maintain my current age--LOL

This is, of course, stunning and perfectly CAS. And, thanks for the facts about anniversaries. I did not know that. We are at 18 years, and I'll tell DH to start saving up for my crown.
