Black and White Anniversary

Friends of my in-laws will soon be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I think that’s such an awesome accomplishment!
They’ve been so sweet to my husband and me since we got married and I wanted to do a little something for them even though they said no gifts. The wife has always been known for her passion for black and white. So while the traditional 50th Anniversary color is gold, I had to honor her color preference. Plus hello… I love black and white so no brainer!
I had another wood plinth from when I made my Paris Plaque.
Wood Plinth
I painted it black and then Mod Podged a tone on tone grey damask print paper from Deja Views Sweet Romance collection on the back and a torn piece on front:
Decoupaged Plinth
Cut out “50” on black vinyl using my Cricut Expression ( Wall D├ęcor and More cart)  and put on top of the torn side after my MP was dry. Went over the painted sides with white and silver RubnBuff and finished with black and white paper flowers, gold rhinestones ( there’s my traditional color!) and a vintage black and white button I’d picked up thrifting.
Mod Podge and Vinyl Plaque
For the card, I used a black and white flourish print paper from Me and My Big Ideas and layered chipboard accents from Colorbok’s Nocturne collection with a KandCo Elegance adhesive scrapbook border. Finished off with Recollections rhinestone swirls.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
