Celebrating 50 Years of Marriage

My friend, Diane, asked if I could come up with something for a 50th wedding anniversary. Since the happy couple are celebrating this momentous occasion with a trip to Hawaii, Diane wanted the card to have a colorful, Hawaiian theme.
So I had to forget about using white and gold and break out the palm trees. Unfortunately, my only stamp with a palm tree has a monkey hanging from it, and the sentiment reads, 'hang in there'! (LOL!)
This time I had an excuse to go shopping at my LSS! I found a pack of Me and My Big Ideas DP and some Jolee's embellishments that would work, and even got a box of tri-fold cards on clearance. Boy, I was surprised with how easily everything went together once I got home.
First, I resized and embossed my card with the new SU! Finial EF. Then I adhered the embellishments and DP. The only thing left to do was cut out and glitter the numbers before adding them to the card's opening, and this card was a wrap!
Supplies: Stamps - none; Paper - me & my Big ideas - Destination Paradise, SU! Pink Pirouette, K&Co. card base; Jolee's Boutique embellishments, Cuttlebug machine, Cuttlebug number dies, SU! Finial EF, glitter, Xyron.
Hope your weekend is super fun. I really appreciate your stopping by!
