Nouveau Golden Wedding Anniversary

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.     I've been busy with family visiting, lots of fun :)

I have a card to show today that was quick to create.    I wanted a simple elegant design for a couple that were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary recently.   
  

The background is paper that's been hanging out in my stash for many years.   It has metallic dots that you can see where the light catches in the photo.   The love birds from Chocolate Baroque's Nouveau Lovebirds set were embossed with gold to which I added a little colour with Tombow markers.   I used gold letter stickers to add the words. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirleyx

This is a really elegant card Shirley and that gold paper is beautiful. The CB birds work perfectly and so prettily coloured, and such a pretty shape to the topper and gorgeous glittery ribbon too. Have a great weekend. x
