PPA108 Card challenge

Pals Paper Arts card challenge for this week was to soften the edges. Well, that challenge is perfect for the card I had to make this week!

Jon's grandparents 55th wedding anniversary is this week and I wanted to go with something soft and elegant. It's a very special and emotional time for everyone as this is their last anniversary together on this earth. We are praying right now that Jon's grandpa makes it till then.

I wasn't sure what colors to use, I even thought about their wedding colors (but I don't know what they were). When looking up the "meaning" of the 55th anniversary on google the result was emerald. So... the color of the card. I also decided to try a new technique I learned in which you partially emboss. I will provide details and instructions on how I made this card later. But for now here is the supply list, all items are SU! unless stated otherwise. Any of the Stampin Up! items you can order directly from me, just email me with what you would like to order.
