Golden Wedding Anniversary

Hi all,

Just wanted to upload a new Wedding Anniversary card I was commissioned for recently. As it was their Golden wedding anniversary, I wanted to use gold cardstock, so have used non-SU for the base, matting of the sentiment and heart. The ribbon was bought in Singapore earlier this year, which I love as it's appropriate for most Wedding Anniversary cards and the colours suit this card especially seeing as I made it in gold and Very Vanilla. The large Very Vanilla heart has been covered with Versamark Dazzle so that in the right angle/light it shimmers like a pearlescent effect. *Note to self:* Must try out my new Shimmer Paint which will give it the same effect - Shimmer Paint mixed with Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle to use like a Shimmer Mist.
