Golden Anniversary

Hello everyone!!!  I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
Today I had to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card for a friend of mine to give to her parents and I must confess this turned out nothing like I planned!!!  I started off with an idea in mind, but this card took on a life of it's own!!!  :)  In the end the recipe went something like this.....

A base of Very Vanilla, layered with black (one edge punched with Fiskars 'Lace' border punch), gold gloss card and some Stemma Foil paper.  I added another strip of black and more paper across the bottom and attached some black satin ribbon.  The main panel has been made using the Label 9 to cut some gold card (have you noticed how much I love this Label 9 set!!??  LOL!!), topped with black and Very Vanilla stamped using the 2" Font and Center Set and the Celebrations Demi Phrases.  The '50' in the centre was made using the Trompe Font Set and stamped in Versamark, embossed with Gold EP and cut and popped up.  The date was made using the 2" Font and Center Set and the Rectangle Wooden Stamper and then cut out using the Fancy Tags Spellbinders.  To finish I added two corners and several Blush Kaisercraft Pearls.

Stamps - 2" Font and Center Set, Celebrations Demi Phrases, Trompe Font Set (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Black Bazzill, Gold Gloss, Stemma Foil DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories - Gold EP, Label 9 Nestabilities, Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Fancy Tags Shapeabilities, Vintage die set, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Black Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls.

Looks good, nice to see you using some metallics, albeit the dreaded gold, but appropriate for this card, sure it will go down a treat!!
