50th Anniversary Card

Tomorrow we are going to a 50th anniversary party for a school mate of my husband.  So here is the card I came up with.
 The card is 5 x 6 1/2, I covered the base card with holographic gold paper, then I stamped with a script background stamp on light golden vellum and heat it embossed it with gold.  The cake was cut from Paper Doll Dress up and is about 5 inches high.  The cake in cut out of white glitter paper, then I covered the "frosting" with gold Perfect Pearls and Diamond Glazed over the top to make it look more like it was thicker or raised.  The "50" is cut from the font on Cindy Loo out of the same holographic gold paper.  I bought some self adhesive Martha Stewart strips that I stuck on the cake as decoration, then finished off the swirls with a few red pearls.
It is very shinny and pretty in person, one of those that just does not photo too well.

The inside I printed the verse on the same vellum, then added some of those Martha Stewart strips down the side.  The bells are a sticker.

Thanks for stopping by.
