30th Anniversary card

Hello again friends; I hope the start of the week has been good for you.  I'm back to share the card I made for hubby to celebrate our recent 30th Pearl anniversary.  I cannot believe where the last 30 years have gone; although I think I deserve a medal for putting up with him for so long lol!  

Here is my card:

this one shows the glittery card better:

My husband is not really into fussy cards so decided to buy a die/stamp set to cut out the 30 and save myself the stress of trying to make something elaborate from scratch.  I die cut the base from navy card and then the 30 was die cut from a pearl glittery card that I've had in my stash for years.  The sentiment was also from the same set and I heat embossed it on the navy card with a glittery powder.  The husband word was die cut in the pearl card and also a dark red which was ever so slightly off set.  The hearts were also cut from the same dark red card.  The finished card is very dimensional as the 30 was added with foam squares along with the sentiment and hearts.  I think the finished result is perfect for my husband.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Color Hues challenge - merlot and navy
Shopping Our Stash challenge - celebrating by the numbers
Dream Valley challenge - dies and/or punches

Thanks for stopping by; I really appreciate all your comments and your continued support.  

Love and hugs,

Congratulations on 30 years! Your card is so clever and perfect for a hubby that doesn't like too much fussiness, although I do like the way you still incorporated glitter paper and hearts! Thanks so much for joining us over at Color Hues!
