Anniversary Celebration

Evening Folks
Hope you have all had a good day.  Well, no rain or snow here but it has been really cold.  The office was freezing when I got in this morning. Took a good couple of hours to really warm up. Ever tried typing on a keyboard when your fingers are numb.  Not that easy lol.
Today's card is the first of a couple of 50th Wedding Anniversary cards that I have got to do over the next couple of weeks.  Lots of sparkle and gems on this one.
I cut out the red heart and the white heart and embossed them both through my big shot.  Used polka dots on the white one and houndstooth on the red one.  These were then matted and layered together with the heart doily.  The different layers of the card are glitter card, black card and patterned paper.  Put some ribbon and a bow at the bottom.  Then added some ribbon roses and some glittered leaves that I cut using my big shot and a spellbinders die.  The final touch was lots of gems (around the red heart, the outside of the card and the swirls).  Added a sentiment using peel offs and a 50 which I cut out of glitter card.
Think it turned out okay.  Bit sparkly but after 50 years of marriage I think the happy couple deserve lots of bling and sparkle.
