50th Wedding Anniversary

Morning friends! I hope you all had a wonderful start to your week. Kyler got dropped off at camp yesterday and I'm sure he is having a great time. The camp has a super hero theme and what boy doesn't like super heroes? It should be a fun week for him!

On Sunday our dear friends Al and Nancy had their 50th wedding anniversary. What a feat it is to make it to 50 years now a days, huh? I truly look up to this wonderful couple. I know that they have their times, too, but they are what a Christian marriage looks like. I thank God for bringing them into our lives!

As I was making this card for them I wasn't thinking that it should really be gold as that is the "gift" for 50th anniversaries. Ends up I used Summer Sunrise (from PTI) anyway so it kinda looks goldish (right? just go with me on this one!). I can honestly say I have no idea where this paper is from but it had the "look" I was going for...homey and comforting. The bow turned out perfectly (thank you Kristina Werner for having a tutorial on tying bows) if I do say so myself.

Anyway, there you have it. I'm off to get things done today. Have a super day!

This is a beautiful card. I love the paper you used. Great idea for this card. I think the summer sunrise is a great substitute for gold. I wouldn't have thought it was summer sunrise unless you said something. TFS!!!

I love everything about this card, Lorie! Especially the way the stripe on the flower lines up with the ribbon. I thought you had a sheer ribbon over the image, but then couldn't find it around the card. I was so confused. :) Yeah, I know, it doens't take much. hehehe.
