50th Anniversary - WOW!!!

Ok, one more post for tonight...I think!  Unless I get on another creative roll.  Hubby is watching the SuperBowl and, to be honest, I have no desire to sit and partake of the craziness this year.  I am enjoying my time in my craft room today!  I probably should clean it up really...

Hubby's parents are celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary and we can hardly believe it!  It really crept up on us so very fast.  In order to celebrate this very special occasion, I once again dipped into my new supplies from the newest Occasions Catalogue from Stampin' Up!.  I also dug into my friend's new  tools from the Sale-a-bration catalogue as well. Here is what I was inspired with for this project:

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am absolutely in love with the new Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and the look of Very Vanilla card stock with the gold details used.  And how appropriate for a golden anniversary!  It's really hard to tell in the pictures, but all of the stamping was done using Versamark and then Gold embossing powder.  It was then heated with the Stampin' Up! heating tool to give it a beautiful wet and raised embossed look.  I used the Memorable Moments stamp set for this card - this occasion is definitely a memorable one for sure!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

I certainly loved this sketch - it was really fun to work with!

I know I didn't use 5 colours this week but I am super pumped about finally being able to enter the Colour Me...!  Challenges.  I have been watching the Design Team since they started at the beginning of January and am super impressed.  Great work ladies!!!

Here is the recipe for this card project:
