Golden Wedding Anniversary

Hi everyone.  Some friends of ours have just celebrated their 50th anniversary.  They were supposed to be going on a cruise but sadly it was not to be.  I made this card and decided to use something other than hearts so for a change I used this flower stamp from a set by Chocolate Baroque called Floral Perfumery


I found a piece of cream pearlescent card and stamped this group of flowers three times using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Gold Metallic Embossing Powder.  I then cut the numbers and a fancy stitched rectangle shape from gold mirri and then the computer generated sentiment cut with a size smaller die to fit on top.  I found a piece of sheer ribbon with a fance gold edge in my box of bits and put a strip of it across the centre of the card before layering it up, and then made a bow from another piece to decorate the side of the sentiment mat.  A quite straightforward card and I think the thing that took the most time was trying to get a good gold colour for the words and choosing a font off the computer..lol. 

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you again soon.






I am entering the following challenges:

The Paper Players - PP502 Wedding/Anniversary.
