Now for my card share……
I made this card for my parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary.  I was inspired by an Artisan Award winner last year.  I used the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, embellished with some pearls, used the Hearts and Labels Framelits, and as a final touch the Champagne Glimmer paper.  The stamp set is Memorable Moments.  The 50 turned out a wee bit crooked but after fussing with it for a good bit of time, that was the best I could do.  It is probably better it you don’t wait until an hour before the dinner celebration to make the card, but my mother loved it.  I hope the card inspires you to make your own special something for that important wedding or anniversary.  As luck would have it there are fifty flowers and pearls on the card.  I did not count them but my daughter did at dinner.
