50th Wedding Anniversary

Hello fellow crafters, 
I do hope you are getting plenty of time to do your favourite thing.
I have a few friends celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary this year (ours is next year) so I thought I would make a card I will have an immediate use for.

I was so looking forward to using this
Marianne Design - Anja Border
It is so elegant and Bec has an excellent special on it at the moment.
I raised it off the background with double sided foam tape.
It comes in two pieces so I cut and raised the centre section by using the second die. 
I also added some tiny pearls here and there.

I thought it might look a little plain in the background so I used a background stamp
from many years ago.  Victorian Diamond Panel 485 and I embossed it with fine gold.

For the Gold at the top and bottom of my card I used Frantic Stamper - Scallop Borders
Centre pieces are:
Raised using double sided foam tape.

Elizabeth Craft - Numbers and more

Hearts are from Sue Wilson - Shadow Boxes - Mr & Mrs
Don't forget to check out Bec's specials and to enter Bizzy Bec's Anything goes Challenge.
One more to go and then I have to do a 25th Anniversary for our son. 
Where did those years go?

Happy crafting to you all.
Hugs Carol
