Commissioned Golden Wedding Anniversary card

I was asked to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card using the photo of the couple's wedding. I printed this out on to a shaped die cut and then mounted this on to a gold mirror card matching shape.

The background sentiment panel is vellum and the gold mirror card top and bottom are embossed strips run through the cuttlebug with an embossing border folder.

The flowers are Craftime and the other bits and pieces are from stash. This is an A5 card.
