Golden Wedding Anniversary

I haven't been able to play all the PTI SAF videos yet, but I did scroll through the posts yesterday. Immediately I fell in love with Heather's cards for the 1920s. We also found out our neighbors are celebrating their 50th anniversary this weekend, so I set out to make a card for the Sparkle & Shine challenge.  
Challenge-8I would love to have the die Heather designed, but fortunately Amira Flourish by Memory Box worked as a substitute. The Xyron didn't give me complete coverage, but I just covered it with spray adhesive & added more Art Institute Pot O' Gold glitter. I used 3 sizes of gems & mounted it to a panel of PTI Vintage Cream cardstock debossed with Anna Griffin Rosa folder.  The sentiment is from PTI Lovely Leaves & is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. I looked through all my PTI sets & this little flourish from Sweet Life was the only thing that fit next to my sentiment except for dots.  I used the same ink stamped off once & added the tiny gems like Heather did.  
I have to say, this is one of my favorite cards.  I have a million bottles of glitter & I'd love to make this using all of them--LOL!  Still hoping to get more cards made for SAF before the deadline--chores can wait! I'm entering at Pixies Snippets Playground, SSS Monday Anything Goes & The Cutting Edge Blog Hop
