Embossed anniversary

The following sketch was more of a challenge for me than usual, but I am happy with the results.  I even got good advice from DH - and followed it LOL!!!  The embossed pieces are from a Sizzix set (I have forgotten the name.)  I used the middle part of the A2 folder.  I divided the "with love" strip. Teal chalk enhances the embossing.   The die cut is from a CB border I have had a long time - the flowers at the bottom are part of the die.  I cut in both teal and white, and layered them - that just gives a bit of an edge IRL, and adds dimension.  Tiny pearls create the center of the flowers  The white flowers are Petaloo.  No name on the dp - it has long been in my stash.
Favorite technique (one of them, anyway!)  dry embossing, with a sentiment:

Hi Dorothy, thanks so much for joining us this week over at SSW, I'm sorry you had a problem with this sketch and glad your dear hubby was there to help these men are so creative sometimes. LOL If I'm unsure sometimes I ask my 12 year old son this one or that one and he always tells me what I want to here, he has a great eye for colour and design. I love your pretty teal and white together and your embossing and embellishments, it may have been easier for your if you had made a square card rather and rectangular for this particular sketch. It's a lovely card and thanks so much for joining us this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
