Today is an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun is shinning, the plants are growing and everything is beginning to look beautiful.  I love this time of the year when everything is fresh and new.  Our winters always seem to be so long, so it is a relief to see the greenery again.
I am going to share a 50th Wedding Anniversary card with you today that I made for friends at our church.  We have 3 50th Anniversaries in the church this year and one last fall.

The base is white card stock that I embossed with the Tapestry folder from Cuttlebug.  Then I gently rubbed gold metallic paint over top to highlight the pattern.  The doily is a Cheery Lynn die-cut I absolutely love.  This is popped up on dimensionals and then added the glittery flowers and calla lilies to the centre.  A strip of sheer gold ribbon was added down the side and a bow and lilies attached to it.  A heart rhinestone flourish is in the bottom right hand corner and a sentiment in the upper left hand corner that was stamped with versa mark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  Really quite an easy card to make.

Have a wonderful day richly blessed by God.
