50th Anniversary Card

This is my take on Kazan's sketch 15 on 2 Sketches 4 You. It started out as a birthday card for a friend, but as I went along, I realized that it would be a perfect card for my in-laws 50th Anniversary coming up in a few weeks. Now it's not like me to be so ahead of the game, but this just felt so right! I don't think the shimmer shows on the photo, but the silver paper is just beautiful and the crystal swirls...well, I love them! We're planning on sending the card and flowers to them on the day and then we are taking them on a family trip to Mexico later in the spring. 50 years is a long time, I think it should be celebrated to the max!

Patterned paper is from Basic Grey, flower and crystal swirls are from Prima. Silver flower brad is from Imaginisce, glitter letter stickers are from Making Memories, scallop die cut is from QuicKuts and embossing folder is from Cuttlebug. The silver paper is from Prism (love it!)

Thanks to the team at 2s4U for another great inspirational sketch!
