BUTTERFLY ANNIVERSARY

A friend asked me to create a 70th wedding anniversary card - imagine that!!!! - being married for 70 years!!!  Anyway, I looked up to see what the color for 70 was - platinum - well, no brainer there - use liquid platinum embossing powder.   So die cut the butterfly, happy and numbers 70 - embossed them and composed the card.  Hadn't really planned on putting the "happy" on a slant, but after playing around decided it looked perfect that way.  Had just bought the gold floss at Michael's and added that. 

 (inside)
The sequins were a new purchase also and thought they looked rather platinum also - put tiny champagne colored pearls from Michael's in the center of each one.  I hope she likes the card!
Will enter this in CAS-ology "flutter" challenge.

Supplies:
Dies: PTI "Life is Beautiful" butterfly and Circle background; HA "Happy" DC117; Provo numbers
Other: Ranger liquid platinum embossing powder; HA "anniversary" stamp CL342; Teresa Collins' Tinsel & Company sequins

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty
