Golden Anniversary card

I would like to share a card today that has a little funny history.  My husband told me that some friends of our were in the paper for their 50th anniversary and we had missed their reception, so would I please make them a card and get it sent to them.  So I made this:
After taking pictures, I sat down to sign it and before I wrote "So sorry we missed your reception" I thought I better check the paper again just to make sure we actually had missed it.  Imagine my surprise when I found the announcement for their "45th Anniversary reception"!!!  Since I had already started writing in it, I carefully removed the inside liner and made a new one!  This card then went to the local store that sells my cards. 

I used Just Rite's lace frame stamp and embossed it with gold.  It really shimmers! The "50" is cut from Plantin School Book, run through the Xyron twice and embossed in gold also, then mounted on a Spellbinders die that was edged with a gold metallic paint pen.  The ribbon is from Wal Mart with a slide from The Paper Studio.  The flowers are also from TPS and the inside stamp is from Hero Arts.

Well, now to get a 45th Anniversary Card made!
