A golden anniversay

Simple card using a gold pearlised card base.

 I first created a background by hand drawing/embossing a heart as all the dies I decided upon had sold out , valentines day I guess. 

I stamped the champagne flute twice with versamark and embossed them with pearl moon-glow powder.I then fussy cut them out.I then stamped the flutes again using stazon twice on bright gold mirricard and twice on dark gold mirricard. I fussy cut the bows only out on the gold cards, on the bright gold i trimmed off the shadow bits of the bows so when overlaid on the dark gold a 3D effect was achieved.
I stuck the dark gold to the flutes and then stuck the bright gold to the dark gold.I used liquid pearls to add the strands of pearls on the images .

 I then added these to the embossed heart using sticky pads to the farthest left to give the impression that it is stood in front of the other glass. I added 3 roses yellow of course and peel-off sentiment and number 50.

Inside I collected facts such as events of the day the top 10 on the couples anniversary date and printed them to add a little interest or a trip down memory lane, Clean and simple on the outside with an interesting centre.
