Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our 38th Wedding Anniversary last week. Wow! Where have the years gone?
I saw Gina K demonstrating this great idea using nestabilities die cuts to make a frame for an image and decided to try it out.
I cut and embossed 4 shapes with the nestabilities tags die and cut each one in half. These were then placed around the edge of a circle that I cut with a circle cutter.
I made a rosette using Tim Holtz rosette die and topped that with a heart that I stamped and cut out. I placed this on a black scalloped circle that I had cut with a nestabilities die. To finish off the top layer, I added some silver peel-offs to the corners.

We celebrated by going to a nice restaurant for a lovely dinner!
Postscript (added 14th May 2011):
I also entered this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge which was to use die cuts! All the embellishments on the card are cut with dies except the heart in the centre!
