This is a wonderful challenge, Wendy, and perfect for my parent's 67th Anniversary card!! I had a rejected piece of embossed vanilla which was brayed on the negative side of the folder with Crumb Cake left over from Monday's TLC challenge....I used it to cutout the damask shape with a Tim Holtz die. Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip were used for the shadow behind the shape. Martha Stewart Punches were used for the leaves and pink satin flowers were added to finish it off. The sentiment is from Verve's Anniversary Birds set. TFL!!

Oh my gosh Joan, this is gorgeous!!! How wonderfully amazing that your parents are celebrating their 67th wedding anniversary. I think it's awesome to reach 50, and anything beyond that is awesome. They will love this card.

You know our parents were always the ones who put our artwork on the refrigerator no matter what it looked like, but MAN,oh, MAN, are you going to wow them with this masterpiece. Congratulations to them. I am fortunate to still have both of my parents still active in my life too. What a blessing!
