I just have to share this card. Today is our 50th anniversary - an anniversary of 50 wonderful years. Some of you looking have seen other posts and know that my dh is a special guy. He has made cards for me in the past, but a couple of days ago he suggested we make this card together - fairly symbolic, as we have done so much together. So here is the result. (DH said to be sure to say he is responsible for 13% - holding the ribbon, choosing paper,and moral support. That is probably worth more than 13%.)
Thanks to Cammie and some others for the idea of the fold: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/568866
and juscolorado for inspiration: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...si=anniversary
I know the scan is way too light, but I hope you get the idea. I selected various papers with gold, and they are pretty light colored.
This fold opens in the middle - slide off the band with the ribbon to open.
(I realized I had better add this: Jen's challenge directions said to be creative - so this just marks the end of our first 50 years - the beginning of many more.)

CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH OF YOU!
I gotta say, on the subject of being creative, it takes some pretty creative minds to have a long successful 50 year old marriage! I think it is wonderful and am happy for you....Here is to the beginning all over again! Have fun today, make it special!
