Milestone Anniversary!

My Mother-in-law's sister (and brother-in-law) are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary next Saturday and I wanted to make a card for them.  Fifty years is a BIG deal!  My parents celebrate their 58th anniversary this year (my hubby and I will celebrate our 20th).  And I think it is important to congratulate these kind of milestones.  It's not just like having a birthday (let's face it, aging doesn't necessarily require any input for you, aside from eating and breathing).  But wedding anniversaries are a testament to perseverance, patience and love.  So Bev and Don, this card and the heartfelt congratulations that accompany it - are all yours!

I saw a gorgeous card here and decided to change it up just a bit to give it a little more of a golden aura.  So here's what I came up with:

Supply List
Stamps - Papillion Potpourri, Memorable Moments
Paper - Whisper White, Brushed Gold
Ink - Versamark
Big Shot - Scallop Square BigZ Clear, Square Lattice EF
Tools and Accessories Elegant Butterfly Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Bird Builder Punch (leaves/stems), 21/2" Circle Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Basic Pearls

I absolutely love how rich and golden this card turned out.  The photo just doesn't do it justice, but hopefully you get the general idea.  And I am certain Bev and Don will be tickled pink (or gold?) when this comes in the mail.

In the meantime - today is the last day of July which means the Reason To Smile promotion is going to be over in tomorrow.  I hope everyone has put in their $60 order to get this beautiful and exclusive stamp set for only $5.  If not, contact me and I can help you to have your own Reason To Smile! 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.  Take care and God Bless,
