MY SHERI CRAFTS CHALLENGE #43 - ANNIVERSARY

Although MY SHERI CRAFTS BLOG hasn't quite had it's first birthday, we are celebrating Anniversaries this week.  We hope you are having fun with the challenges Peachy has come up with over these past few months!  I wanted to do an elegant card this week for my parents.  They are celebrating their Anniversary in a few weeks.  Here's what I came up with:
The paper is handmade with silver flowers that I had in a pad I bought last year.  The center image coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Two, which I first cut and embossed in silver and then hand cut the main image a little smaller.  The image is from Waltzing Mouse Very Vintage Labels No. 2 and was heat embossed with Martha Stewart Sterling Silver Embossing Powder.  For the sentiment, I used JustRite Wedding Sentiments in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  It's hard to tell how shimmery this card really is but I took a closeup so you can see some of the details.
I'm not sure where those little flowers came from but I had them in my stash and the rhinestones where pieces left over from another project that I cut up and rearranged.  I've had the makings of this hat pin for quite a while too (thanks to my cuz who donated a bag full of silver odds and ends).  I thought it fit this card perfectly!  And, who couldn't LOVE that white satin ribbon?!? TFL!!
