Same design - but different!

Whilst making a card last month (here) I thought it could be interpreted for different occasions so when I was asked to make some Golden Anniversary cards I decided to utilise the design for one of them.
This was a quick card but am pleased with the result.
White pearlised card layered onto some gold matt finish card.
I stamped the flourish branch and sentiment and gold embossed.
Cut out the two hearts with the remains of the paper and put the left over gold card behind the smaller of the two then layered them together.

Scrap of gold stretchy twine into a bow and glued in place.

I thought about embossing a '50' in the centre of the heart but didn't want 'gold overload' as really it is not a colour I like working with!
I'll share the others I made for the same happy couple at a later time.


Challenges -
Die Cut Divas - Emboss it
Gem of a Challenge - Anniversary
OLLCB - Anniversary

This works perfectly. I agree a 50 would detract from the overall look of the card. Hugs Mrs A.
