To have and to hold

It is our 38th wedding anniversary tomorrow. Where have the years gone? Perhaps that was in the back of my mind when I was thinking about this week's CAS-tastic challenge. I chose 3 elements from the list to include on my card - embossing, inked edges and stamping.

Again, I am using a 6" square card and positioning the fold at the top. I matted a slightly smaller gold paper ( has a tiny embossed pattern) then a white swirl embossed rectangle. The ribbon was wrapped around before layering. To create the effect of a bow, I just tied a smaller piece in a single knot. I'm afraid that I haven't had my dandelion stamp fix for a while so stamped, and heat embossed it with Versamark and Gold embossing powder. I had already used the computer to arrange the text and then cut out the tag shape. This was mounted on 3D foam before placing it behind the ribbon. I inked the edges of both the tag and the swirl rectangle with gold ink.
