50th Anniversary Card

There is no better occasion to celebrate than a long lasting marriage.  My great grandparent's were married for seventy-one years before my grandmother passed.  Throughout my life I've always admired the couples who can make it work.  To celebrate fifty years of wedded bliss is truly a milestone.  I made this 50th Anniversary Card using the Freshly Made Sketches weekly challenge sketch

50th Anniversary Card Supplies:  Recollections pearlized gold folded card (4.5" x 6.25"), Recollections gold foil paper, specialty papers by The Paper Studio, ivory cardstock, Recollections gold glitter tape, Cricut machine (the Cricut was used to cut the ovals and numbers), Happy Anniversary stamp by Stampabilities (FR1035), hearts and flowers corner stamp by All Night Media (371F, this stamp has been in my collection for a very long time), VersaMark watermark stamp pad, Stampendous! pearl white translucent embossing powder, gold metallic pigment ink, heat tool by The Paper Studio, mini heart punch by Creative Memories, gemstones by The Paper Studio, and dimensionals.
