50th Anniversary Card!

Hi, everyone!

It's a gorgeous day in PA with the sun shining and birds singing!  It is so hard to believe that it is February 18th and there is no snow on the ground.  This has truly been a welcomed, yet unusual, winter.

Early this morning, I went to work on this card. 

The "50th Wedding Anniversary" was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and I stamped the "Happy" sentiment, after I assembled the cut out letters.  The card seemed to need something else, so I heat embossed some Fancy Flourishes to "jazz" it up a bit.  You can't tell in the photo but the gold swirl under the sentiment is on gold shimmer cardstock and really pops.

In order to tie the front to the inside, I matted the sentiment panel on the gold shimmer cardstock and I love the way it turned out.

I can't imagine reaching this milestone and hope that the blessed couple enjoys this very special milestone!
