Golden Wedding Anniversary

Hello again!
Today I have a personalised anniversary card which I was asked to make.
To make the card I cut and creased a 15x15cm card blank from a sheet of A4 smooth cream card.
Next I printed the sentiment using the computer on a 13x13cm cream square and tied seam binding ribbon around it, finishing with a bow. 
I layered the square on the card blank and cut 2 different sized hearts from gold card using Nestabilities dies.
I embossed one with a cuttlebug swirls embossing folder in the Big Shot.
Then I adhered the larger heart flat on the card and raised the embossed heart (slightly overlapping the other) with foam pads.
To finish I added 3 tiny pearls to each of the hearts.
Regular readers of my blog will know that I'm not too keen on working with gold card
but you know what?
It's growing on me!
I love this card and you might see more gold creeping in from time to time :)
I hope you have a lovely day whatever you do
and I'll be back soon with more projects.
Sarah xx
