Bling it on!!

Today is Monday and my DT day over at Ginger Snap Scraps. Today's theme is Bling it on! Now what girl would not love to do a project for this theme?

I have been working on a project for a family anniversary coming up the end of the month.
I will share more of that later in the month.

Today, I did a card for the happy couple.
My inspiration came from this project here. I felt it was a bit more wedding looking than I wanted for a 50th Anniversary. So, with my Gypsy, I went to work and modified it to meet my needs.
I used several Cricut carts to achieve what I wanted including an Imagine cartridge.

You can find all of these Cricut cartridges along with embellishments and stickles in the Ginger Snap Scrap store. Hope you stop over to see what other DT members have created today for you.

Oh, and if you love Ginger Snap Scraps as much as I do, check out their Design Team call going on now!

Here's how I did it...
Paper is all gold card stock from my stash
Floral pattern printed on med gold paper from Elise Imagine Cart
Download Cricut file here to modify
Numbers cut at 1.71" from Nursery Rhyme cart
Printed the gold floral background on inside heart with Elise Imagine cart- I know it is hard to see the floral design in the photo
Letters for the word years from Ashley's Alphabet sized to fit shape
Flowers cut at 1" and 1.25" from Home Decor
Sticker pearls from my stash
Frosted Lace Stickles on flower petals
