Golden Anniversary

Welcome to 2015! Hope you have had a lovely Christmas and New Year!

I'm back in the craft room today after the Festive break and needed to make a quick Golden Anniversary card for a relative...

I used a cream linen card for the base. The letters and leaves are die cut using a dull gold paper.  The flowers are punched and shaped with an embossing tool and mounted using a piece of foam. There's something about this that reminds me of a Greek wreath crown.

I've entered this into the challenges at:

Crazy 4 Challenges - clean and simple
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - clean and simple
AAA Cards Challenges - use a little gold
ShowCASe Your Style Challenge - use at least 2 die cuts

Thanks for visiting
