Happy Anniversary

Today I'm playing along with two challenges: (1) Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and (2) NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) Challenge.

Here's what I created:


My parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary later this month, so I wanted to make them an extra special card. Since the 50th anniversary of marriage is also known as the "Golden Anniversary" I broke out some hot foil plates and gold foil :) I've had these glimmer hot foil plates in my stash for awhile but this is my first time using them (It's that good old "I shop way faster than I craft" problem----ha!)

These magnolias are so gorgeous! I'm really excited about how this turned out :) I hope my parents love it!

Thanks for visiting!

Have a great weekend!!!
