50th Anniversary Pocket Card & Some Vacation Memories

Hi friends! As promised, I'm back from our respite in the south. Thankfully, the Penturner's Gathering came when it did for we really needed some time away to recoup. We headed down to Virginia last week, then took in the Mid-Atlantic Penturner's Gathering on the weekend. This years was fantastic and The Penmaker and I even won some great door prizes. That alone was worth the trip. From there we went across North Carolina to Gatlinburg, TN. While we usually rent a cabin or condo, for something different (and due to the suddenness of the trip) we stayed at an inn we have enjoyed in the past (lots of good memories on this journey). I had a wonderful time at Your Scrapbook Superstore in Pigeon Forge and for a treat, we saw Captain America: Civil War in the new theatre (reclining seats).

Now back to business... a 50th anniversary card made with papers from the Kaisercraft Provincial collection.

I use a bunch of dies on this card... from Spellbinders - Classic Circles, Scalloped Circles, 
Alterations - Mini Hearts, Vintage Market Alphabet,  Ornate Frame #2.
I bought the gold paper at Hobby Lobby and the small scalloped circle was cut from a gold metallic burlap tag my DIL gave me for Mother's Day.

The flowers and leaves are by Petaloo, 

the lace trim came from Pat Catans,

and the gold metal butterfly is from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, wow, what an elegant and beautiful anniversary card, Linda! I love the texture and love all the soft neutrals with the pops of gold! The clock face is so perfect for your theme. Love the framework with the florals, too!
So glad you had a nice time on your trip! Welcome home!
