Two Anniversaries

I was asked to make 2 anniversary cards this week, one for a silver 25th, the other for a 48th.

This card uses the largest heart die from Marianne's scalloped heart set, one cut with silver mirror card, the other from paper (backed with card first, for strength) from a Melissa Frances collection called Classic Elegance.
The backing paper, and paper used for the flowers and strip across the card are both from a combo paper pack by Webster's Pages.

I used dies from Die-namics 'By The Number' and from Clearly Besotted Stamps, and my eyelet border punch by Stampin Up.

I'd like to enter this card at:
QKR Stampede - use a die cut
Use Your Stuff - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - to die for
That Craft Place - Blue

This next card used an oval frame by Spellbinders, Decorative Elements 'Elegant Ovals'.
I used papers 'Mr & Mrs' (Raspberry Road Designs) by Lili of the Valley.

Happy Anniversary is a stamp from All Night Media,
Mum & Dad is by Clearly Besotted Stamps (You & I).
Again, I added numbers by Die-namics, which still have wet wink of stella in the photo!, and punched flowers and pearls to decorate.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Crafty Catz - flowers
ABC challenge - P for pretty in pink
