Golden Anniversary

This card was made by special request.  One of my husband's co-workers asked me to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary card with specific wording; therefore, the sentiment was computer generated.


Since she didn't make any specific color requests I chose this textured pp from DCWV's Old World Mat Stack.  I've had it for years and seem to forget about it.  I embossed some flourishes on it using Ranger's super fine detail gold EP.  Love that stuff.

After I cut the sentiment panels out with my Labels 10 nesties I traced the smaller one with a gold paint pen.  Then added some tiny gold pearls. 

Here's the inside with the requested wording:

It was so nice to get a special order card.  She loved the end result and actually paid me double what I had asked for!  Can't argue with that:)

Oh Sara, this is so lovely! I have that DCWV stack too but didn't recognize the paper - it looks so much more beautiful with the gold embossed swirls! Also love the framed sentiment and gold detailing. I'm not surprised she paid you double. And congrats on the request/order!
