Fifty Years

Hello everyone,

My mother is visiting her brother out West this summer, getting gorging herself on blueberries, the mountains and small-town life.  She is going to be attending a 50th wedding anniversary party so she commissioned a special card.

The printed paper is Rossi 1931 layered on a brushed gold and shimmery aqua of unknown origin.  The images are Impression Obsession Small Flourishes stamped on Recollections Vanilla in Stampin' Up Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay, and Close To My Heart Peacock and Twilight, highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, and layered on more brushed gold and shimmery aqua.  The sentiment is Just Rite Large Fancy Sentiments stamped in Tsukineko Lightning Black on Recollections Vanilla and layered on more brushed gold.  The embellishments are Platinum Liquid Pearls.

This is one very beautiful card.  I found this printed paper at local paper store in Ottawa - Paper Papier - which carries some extraordinary wrapping papers.  I love visiting the store as it's always inspiring and has been the jumping off point for some pretty spectacular cards.  Not only did this sheet have some great flourishes but it has some beautiful blues and just a hint of shimmer.  The sheets are much larger than a normal 12 x 12 scrapbook paper but once cut up, it's perfect for sharing.  I think Mom will love this card.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
