Fifty Years--Wow!

I made this card for my mother to give to some dear friends of hers who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today. I loved Mojo Monday's sketch, which is both easy to follow and absolutely gorgeous, and really like how it turned out. 

I am always excited when someone asks me to make a card for them, because it gives me an excuse to buy more paper! Something I never have enough of! Which is exactly what I did here! Beautiful beautiful paper! Paper paper paper!!!!

Can you tell I have a bit of an addiction? :)
