Happy Anniversary x 2

I made a couple of anniversary cards for 2 couples at church (they loved them).
My first card is done in gold and I used the photo inspiration at Just Us Girls and went with the flowers, dots and gold in the photo.  The gold dotted paper is from Teresa Collins Studio Gold 6x6 pad.  The gold foil paper is from Holiday Elegance by Craft Smith (from Michael's).  I punched the leaves from the same paper with SU Build A Bird punch.  The flowers from SU Flower Soft are stamped in Versamark on Vellum, embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder and mounted with foam tape.   Happy Anniversary is from an Innie & Outie stamp from Hobby Lobby.

This card is based on Deneen Treble's card (thank you Deneen) I saw on Pinterest.  I changed the colors, flowers and banner, but love the way she did the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and background.   I used SU Lost Lagoon DSP and stamped the flower from Vintage Vogue (retired) in Lost Lagoon ink.  The leaves are from SU Peaceful Petals on Old Olive.  The banner is cut with the Artiste cartridge on my Cricut.  The sentiment is also from SU Something To Celebrate.  I curved the stamp a little on my block before stamping it in Lost Lagoon ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
