My sweet SBC (sister by choice!) asked me to make a special anniversary card for her sister and her husband for their 25th Silver Anniversary.  I was anxious to use some of the crafting goodies that I purchased on my trip to Oregon, and the sheet of paper I used for the background of this card was perfect.  The design is delicate and subtle without being too feminine, and I also really like the neutral colors.

The cutout design on the side was done with a Martha Stewart edge punch.  I stamped my image on light cream colored card stock cut out with my Cuttlebug, and it is heat embossed with fine detail silver embossing powder.  The sentiment was done in the same way.  Both are raised with pop-dots off of the dark gray background.  I added the paper roses, a tiny bow then the rhinestone swirls for some bling.  I found a lovely verse on line for the inside and printed it with my computer.  When I delivered it today it was received with lovely smiles.  So glad she likes it!
