65th wedding anniversary card

A while ago, I mentioned that my work colleague asked me to make one of these, after I did her a 45th anniversary card.  Here it is!

Based loosely on the aqua/peach card design I blogged recently, it has a double mat and invert-round corners, with pearls in the space created by the rounding.  The paper is years old and may be Hot Off The Press.  The twirly heart is done with a Cheery Lynn die, the two smaller ones are x-cut punches, the sentiment tag is a Dienamics die.  The sentiment itself is from Stamping All Day.  I bought the flowers at the Make it show recently, but have no idea from which stand!  I cut up some pearl swirls to finish.

I am rather pleased with this, I especially like the effect of the double invert corner mats and pearls, so you'll be seeing some more of those :-)
