Golden Wedding Anniversary & A Rubbernecker Sale

It's snowing her today....hope the sun is shining wherever you are!

I am getting completely addicted to using dies!! This was for my neighbor's 50th wedding anniversary.  Gold Mirror paper is so hard to photograph!!

I die cut the Memory Box La Rue Heart  and adhered it to a Memory Box Grand Heart using a mini glue pen.  The roses are My Favorite Things Rolled Roses with pearls added to the center. I peeled a layer of the backing off of the mirror paper to make it easier to roll...worked like a charm!  The greenery is Memory Box Tender Leaves and A Martha Stewart punch.  I popped this up with pop dots over a white panel that has been dry embossed with a Swirly  Sizzix Texture plate. Some white lace and ribbon from my stash and a ZVA Creative Pearl Flourish that has been cut into pieces to work for my card. The love birds in the corner are Memory Box Nested Birds and they are perched using pop dots  on a Memory Box Attic Key.

Lots of dimension...

I am entering this in the following challenges....
Papertake Weekly-All Creatures Great And Small~ My love birds

Rubbernecker is having a sale!!  I know I need to start my Christmas shopping! How about you?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!!
