50th Wedding Anniversary card

Can I say a huge thank you to all those who wish my DH a happy birthday, you are all so kind. I did some crafting today and this is the card I made. Was asked to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary card and this is what I created. 

I looked up flowers and their meaning for 50th anniversary and found this:
"50TH ANNIVERSARY FLOWER
Yellow Roses - Symbolizes inner joy, light, happiness, the beauty of a long prosperous marriage, friendship, true love"
This is an 8 x 8 inches card. The rose image is a PSX stamp which I stamped three times and cut out the flowers heads and layered them up. The image was coloured using watercolours. I used  my very useful Tonic dies for the decorative square and rounded squares. The edges were inked with a gold liner pen and the sentiment is a Stampendous stamp. The butterflies were stamped using a Hero Arts stamp. 

Hope the suns is shining where you are.

That's such a beautiful card. I love yellow roses. They are very pretty. Interesting to see different meanings for them, both positive and negative. But of course, each marriage is different :-)
