Happy Anniversary

I was totally inspired by an invitation for a blessing ceremony we got in the mail yesterday to make an anniversary card...
Used a branch and a bird die from Memory Box.  I die cut the branch in bazzill java and again twice in shiny gold.  I cut the leaves off the brown branch along with part of a branch(made the remainder look like it was an extension of the main branch), and cut and pasted the gold leaves to the brown branch.  I added a few extra for some "flow"...it just looked too stiff and unnatural without some extra leaves here and there.  Here's a pic of the branch in it's original cut...
Ok...I know what you're thinking...that's a lot of pasting.  Yes, it took a little bit of time, but I really love the gold leaves...especially for an anniversary card.  Hey, but what about shiny copper paper and gold paper for Fall...I'm on it:):)!!!  The sentiment is Clearly Besotted...love these sentiments!!  The card is Stampin Up Sahara Sand.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
