 This card  is for my cousins 50th today!!   I used white card stock for the base, and dabbed Memento Desert Sand over Spellbinders Flourish Impressabilties for the background.  Because it's their 50th (gold), I  tore a page from DCWV Natural pad for the roses, rather than heat embossing stamped images.  The butterflies are cut using SU butterfly die.  I heat embossed the sentiment using SUchocolate and SUclear embossing powder.  The embellies are from my stash:)
This was for my in-laws 61st anniversary!  Isn't that wild--60+years:)  They are such a cute couple and still so much in love with each other, the heart just had to be there.  I used beige cardstock for the card base, three coordinating papers from Basic Grey's Cappella pad.  I heat embossed the heart (from my stash) and the sentiment with SUgold embossing powder.  The pearls are again 'from my stash'.

 Even though I consider them CAS, I think they look very 'classy'.   I found two great verses on the web that I glued inside each one with added embellies but forgot to take a photo.

Embossing Mania

When I get the hang of something, I really go for it!!  I had fun making these cards using versamark, ZingWhite embossing powder, SU Sizzix butterfly die and hardware.  Papers and ribbons are mostly from TE.  
Friends card used Hero Arts 'Earth Flower' stamp set. 
Rest of the stamps are mostly from the $1 bin at Michael's, some wood, some acrylic. 
What can I say...I'm cheap:)
