5oth Anniversary Card

In checking out my usual challenge blogs this week I found one asking us to make a wedding/engagement card and one asking us to make a circle card.  I began to imagine this card and then I read our local paper and found some friends of ours are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend!  How perfect is that?

I used a flower cut from Paper lace cut at 5".  The top layer of the flower is cut from gold foil paper, the shadow cut is Die Cuts With A View white glitter paper.  (This paper is really thick and you need to use the deep cut blade and the 2x multi cut function if using a Cricut.)  Instead of layering the two pieces in the exact alignment, I turned the top layer a little to make the flower fuller. 
The couple is from the Wedding cartridge, cut at 2" also in the glitter paper and the 50 is from Plantin Schoolbook cut at 3/4" and I used the skewer function on my Gypsy to give it a little "twist".  I also cut the couple in plain white paper and used pop dots to give it some dimension.

 The base of this card is the same shadow cut of the flower in black textured cardstock and I welded two of them together on my Gypsy, then cut a white layer to write on.  The little cake embellishment is a Jolee's Boutique dimensional sticker--part of the goodies I won from Circle B.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
