Golden Wedding Anniversary

I was recently asked if I could make five golden Wedding Anniversary cards for a friends Mum and Dad. As we know the couple as well, I ended up making six and I'm glad to say they are all different. This is one that I made from us, using the Harlequin Rose stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. This set make such romantic card, and is Ideal for Anniversary's. I stamped the rose with versamark and embossed with Wow fine gold embossing powder, then coloured it in with promarkers. I swiped some ink from Stampin up, around the edges of the topper. The colour I used was Crushed Curry. Using the same colour on a piece of backing paper printed form the Love letters downloads, also from Chocolate Baroque, I then over stamped using the Leafy Heart from the same stamp set. Again I went around the edges of the paper with the ink pad. The sentiment dies are by Rob Addams, these I cut out twice, once in gold and again in black and off set the gold on top on the black. The corner die from Marianne., and the ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
