Anniversary Greeting

At my choir last night Anniversary cards seemed to be in demand. I had a few which were suitable without actually saying Happy Anniversary on the front. However today I thought that I would remedy the matter and make some cards specifically for anniversaries.
The is the first of them.
I loved the look of this sketch from Truly Scrumptious this week and I'm sure I'll be using this one again!
Our Creative Corner has the challenge of an Anniversary card, but maybe to use a different number than the usual 25 for silver and 50 for gold etc. I saw that the 10th anniversary is sometimes referred to as aluminium, so as the pearlised paper on this card is rather like aluminum (as you stateside gals call it) I thought that this card would be fine for that!
I wanted a large circle for the base layer of this card and none of my Nesties was big enough, so I made the circles with my X Cut Circles. There is no comparison in finish between the two methods... Nesties win hands down, but at least I have my large circles without having to cut them out with scissors, which would have come a very poor third in the rankings!
The pearlised paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the the computer generated sentiment and the heat embossed heart are mounted on Nesties.
The leaves are from a Leonie EM punch.
I've just bought a new ivy leaf embossing punch, so I'm going to have to dream up a project for that!
