50 years

Have you ever really thought about how long 50 years is? My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary next week.  That is such an amazing accomplishment.   I feel so blessed to have them as my parents and to have the example that they have set for us.  I wanted to make a special card for them, and this is it. I think my mom will really appreciate it, but not sure about dad!! LOL.  He will appreciate it, but mom will get it, you know what I mean!!!! I used the sketch over at Just Magnolia for their Week 79 Challenge.  I love this bridal magnolia stamp.  The heart is also a Magnolia stamp.
The roses are actually from 3 different sources. The largest flower is Prima, the next size is from Recollections, and the tiny ones are from Magnolia. The Bling is from Recollections as well. The 50 in the swirly tag is from CTMH.  Here is a closeup of the bling!
Lots of Copics were used on these images:
BRIDE:
Skin: E-000, 00, 02, R-20
Dress: R-000, 01, 02
Roses: R-81, 83, 85

GROOM:

Shoes: W-1, 3, 5, 7
Hair: Y-11, 21, 26, 28

Heart: R-81, 83, 85, 89
The paper is Graphic 45 Fashionista Collection en vogue 4500077

And the last shot of the inside of the card!
