Unusual Anniversary Card

This anniversary card is unusual - at least for me - because I would seldom use those colors for such an occasion.  However, they are the colors the bride had at her wedding so I went with it!  I had to finish my card quickly because I had just remembered about the anniversary of guests who were coming that night for dinner and had plenty to do!

After cutting my background paper to size and inking the edges with dark blue ink, I attached it to my card front.

The focal element was created using "Dazzles" from Hot Off the Press. I simply placed the stickers on my yellow-gold glimmer paper and cut close to the edges.  Then I heat embossed my sentiment on them.

I matted my sentiment hearts on blue glimmer paper backed with the same yellow-gold.  The mat was created using one of Maryanne's cut and emboss folders.  After attaching the mat to the card, I added the heart sentiments with foam tape for dimension.
