I was commissioned to design a 60th wedding anniversary card. Since this is traditionally the Diamond Anniversary, I decided to keep it white with "jewel" accents. I also wanted to make a retirement card for a friend so I used the same design. I fussy cut the butterfly from another die cut card stock then popped it up for emphasis.  I think that they turned out quite nicely...simple and elegant!

Materials Used:
Card Stock: Georgis-Pacific
Die: Darice
Sentiment on front of first card: Computer Generated
Inside sentiments: Found on internet, wish I could remember the source...
Silver inside paper: Michael's

I am entering the second card in the following challenges:

Sister Act Challenge: Anything Goes

Thursday Challenges:
