50th Wedding Anniversary

Evening Folks
This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down for my Penny's Paper-Crafty DT card.
Hope you are all well.  Been a bit of a funny day today.  Spent the morning at work which was quite exhausing as very busy at the moment.  Then came home at lunchtime and spent some time in my crafty room.  Didn't get much done as most of my time was spent doing inserts, envelopes and boxes for cards already made. However hard I try I always end up with a huge pile of cards needing the finishing touches.  Will just have to try harder lol.
I was also pleased to be awarded a Top 3 in the challenge over at Dude Time Doodles last week.  I so love their images.
Did manage to get one card done.  We are going to a 50th Wedding Anniversary party on Saturday for my hubby's Aunty and Uncle.  So it was getting quite urgent that I got a card done.

The lovely stamp with the doves on is a Stampavie one by Penny Johnson called Chanson D'Amour.  I stamped it and then heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder.  I mounted it on a Spellbinders die which I also heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I embossed a piece of white card using my big shot.  I used a cuttlebug folder that I have with script.  The butterflies are a Marianne Creatables die set that I have recently purchased.  The rose and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dieing for a challenge - Anything goes
Little Claires - Romance
Crafty Sentiments - Things with wings
Whimsy Stamps - Embossing

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you all again soon.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day at work.
Take care

Hats off to you, beautiful work. Good luck at the stamping boutique gold challenge, and congrats on getting your card pile finishing touches done!
