Embossed anniversary

My friend asked me to make her a card for her in-laws' anniversary. I always like to offer a couple of choices, and these are the cards I came up with. I also used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities for some dry embossing since that was the challenge this week at Our Creative Corner. The only request my friend had was to use blue, so the first card is traditional blues and the second card is a little more modern.
