Diamond Wedding Anniversary

It's my parent's Diamond Wedding Anniversary in a month and I wanted to make a real show stopper.  This colour combination of platinum, greys and champagne is one of my favourites, and I think it's softer and more elegant than the traditional white and silver.

Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Indulgence Pop-Up Sentiments, Layering Butterflies, Layering Scallop Circle, Everyday Sentiments, Indulgence Affections, Regal Strip Deep Edge Punch, Butterfly Strip Punch, Vintage Frame Die, Silhouette Cameo, Grand Calibur
Paper and Card: Stardream, K and Co, Vellum
Embellishments: flatback pearls, crystals, picot-edge ribbon, metal tag
The focal point of my card is, naturally, the number 60.  I cut this from some speciality patterned pearlescent cardstock and then decorated the '60' with crystals.  I then mounted this onto a scalloped circle from the layering die-set.

My card also has a couple of hidden elements - created some elongated tags using my Vintage Frame die half-off the mat, and topped them with the more sentiments.  This 'With Love' is actually the waste from one of the Pop-Up Die Sets. I used a hole punch to punch through the 'o' and the top of the 'e'.  The Just for You is from Everyday Sentiments Set 1, and I glitter accented the hearts.

You can see the tags peeing out from behind the heart topper.
The heart topper itself is decorated with a kaleidoscope of bejewelled butterflies.
