50Th Wedding Anniversary

Hi everyone,  There's a new challenge starting today at the Belli Challenge and the theme is Numbers.

I've used SB Grand Labels One dies along with Grand Decorative Labels One to create this card.  
The inside elements are SB Marvelous Squares and the sentiment was created in Word.

For the inside, I embossed the Marvelous squares on gold mirror card that was cut using Grand Labels One. 
 Sentiment obtained from the net and printed in word before cutting, again with SB Marvelous squares. 
 I made a pocket in some old vellum to insert a gift card. 
 The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Bow was made with seam binding from my stash.

Really a very simple card to make- there is no colouring....just a lot of cutting and embossing and again it looks better irl   As this was a commissioned card, I blurred the names.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. 2 sisters Challenge #158 - Square
  2. Make it Monday #155
  3. Created with Love Challenge #55 - Anything Goes
  4. Victorine Stamps Challenge #66  - Love
  5. Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Embossing
  6. A Gem of a Challenge #94- "B"for bow
  7. Sister Act Card Challenge #21 - Anything Goes
 Thank you so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
