Cards from A - B

I could do cards from A - Z, but that post would be enormous, so it's just A - B for Anniversary and Birthday!
My brother George and his lovely wife, Jeanne, will be celebrating 50 years of marriage in September. What an achievement that is today. I was thinking about what type of card to make and wanted to do something with an elegant feel to it. But you know what, I'm just not the elegant sort. I just had to add this Stamping Bella image, which I embossed with Egyptian Gold embossing powder, which is a tad more sparkly than regular gold ep. I'm not afraid they'll see this card, because they don't know about this website. I didn't tell my brother because I just can't see him sitting down to go through it and ooooh and aaahh over my cards. He's much older than I am and already thinks I'm enough of a pest!

This is the B card! A birthday card for Jeanne, of the couple above. She will be celebrating her birthday on August 7th, so it's going in the mail today. Another Stamping Bella image which recently came into my possession. I love Veggiebella.
This card is also my entry for the Weekly Challenge #14 over at Ribbons and Ink. I was lucky enough to win last week's draw and wish to thank Heather for offering up these challenges. They really make me get busy and do my cards. I chose colour combination #35 which was Mellow Moss, Close to Cocoa and Regal Rose. Love combination, I think! Thanks agian, Heather.
Now I'm off to check out Dapple Designs to see what the color challenge will be for this week. See you soon.

They are both so darn cute! Love the elegant touches on the Anniversary card and VeggieBellas is so cute done up in those colors! Awesome!

Barb, that is an AWESOME golden anniversary card. They are going to love it. And the Veggiebella card is darling. I think that is my favorite Stamping Bella image. Great cards!

They are both great cards! I like how you adapted the sketch on your card - or how you saw the sketch differently than I did. The waves at the bottom, along with the flowers give it a nice soft feel. Thanks for playing!! :)
