Golden Wedding Wishes

Evening Everyone,
I hope that it has been more summery where you are than it has been here. It's been wet and dull all day, much more like Autumn than Summer.
So I thought I would inject a little sunshine with this card that I made for a friend to give her parents on their Golden Wedding Anniversary.
I used the fabulous 'Congratulations' stamp from Lili of the Valley which I stamped and embossed in gold onto pale cream card stock.
I also added my favourite Hero Arts Leaf Flourish F5042 using Antique Linen Distress ink.
The sentiment has been made up using stamps from a couple of Woodware sets FRCL043 Wedding Words and FRCL107 Wedding Anniversaries
The main panel on the card has been dry embossed with an Embossalicious Flourish folder and then I added  more Antique Linen ink and some White Fire Treasure Gold Metallic Wax.
The panel was cut out using a Go Create die and then mounted onto matching gold card stock.
The flowers and leaves have been cut from gold and kraft card using an assortment of dies (mostly DooHickey's). I also added some Card Candi and stamen from my stash.
As usual I attached them with silicon which helped to give the whole thing some dimension.
Fortunately the card was being hand delivered so I got away without having to make a box for it.
I would like to enter a couple of challenges, something I haven't done for a while.
A Vintage Journey - Dies and Distress (Plenty of dies, also Distress ink and Frantage powder)
Crafty Catz - Flowers (Plenty of them )
Creative Moments - Anything Goes / Celebration (50 years of marriage is definitely reason for Celebration)
Little Red Wagon - Wedding / Anniversary (Golden Wedding)
Craft Room Challenge - Wedding / Anniversary
Die Cutting Divas - Wedding or Anniversary
Have a great weekend. I am looking forward to playing with some new stamp sets from Hobby Art in preparation for Jenny's TV appearance next Thursday.
Happy Crafting and hugs
