Same layout---Different look

One of the deacons at our church celebrated 55 years of marriage the other day. They are such nice people and have been great advisors and friends to our family. I set out to make them a card and this is what transpired.
The numbers are embossed in gold EP. They are the retired Headline Numbers, but there are some wonderful new ones in the Spring/Summer Catalog that would work just as well if not better. The "Congratulations" is also embossed in gold. Again from a retired hostess set. It was just perfect for this card. The paper and embelishments are all current. Gold brads, River Rock Designer Prints, Brushed Gold paper, and cream Grosgrain Ribbon. The "55" is up on dimensionals.
The layout is SC157 from the Wednesday sketch challenges. I liked it so much I made another card. This one features the Flower Fusion felt flowers. The stamped swirl if from "Priceless" and is done in white craft ink. The "cherish" is from "Warm Words". The papers are Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, and Berry Bliss DSP. There is also some Chocolate Chip thrown in for contrast. I love this color combination. A few pastel brads and Pink ribbon and I am done.
