Happy Anniversary - FMS 89 - CFC104 - MIM 119

Hi, I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!  A quick post today, to share I card I created for the Freshly Made Sketches 89.  It's been quite a while since I played along.  I was asked to create a 50th wedding anniversary card, and this sketch was a great starting point for my card!
Here's the sketch.
*Edited to add: One of my friends reminded me that the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, CFC104 is banners and flags.  So, I'm entering my card in the CFC104 challenge also.

*ETA: I'm also entering my card in Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday 119 Challenge.  Flagged borders!

My card.

I decided to use just ivory and gold for this 50th wedding anniversary card.  The card looks fairly simple doesn't it?  Well...not so much.  I spent almost 3 hours on it.  Yikes.  My fingers and brain were not playing well together today.
Now that it's finished, I'm pleased with the results though.
I used gold embossing powder, brushed gold card stock and a piece of gold cord...along with naturals ivory card stock.
Well, I've got to go.  I still need to make a Father's Day card, so  I'd better start now.  You know, it might take me all week to complete it.  Grrr!
Thanks for taking a look today.  I appreciate your visit!

Supplies list ~
Card stock: naturals ivory, brushed gold (SU)
Ink: versamark
Stamps: background basics - wrought iron, beautiful butterflies (PTI)
Die: number time trio (PTI)
Other: gold cord, foam tape, scor-tape, tombo multi glue
