Happy Anniversary...Loving Couple

As promised, I'm back with a card!  Our anniversary (Mike and I) is  coming up next month, 11 years!  This year I made him a card instead of buying one.  I absolutely love this image from Magnolia, it is so tender and loving.  We have been through so much since our wedding day, people usually say that I love my husband as much as I did when we got married.   For me, I love my husband so much MORE than when we got married because of all the "stuff" we have been through together.  I used the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge #27.  I will be guest designer for them in September.
The new wedding collection is now in stock at 7 Kids College Fund.   Loving Bride and Groom is one of my favorites from the wedding collection.  The other image on the card is Oak Tree.  My designer paper is from Basic Grey.  I embellishmented the flowers and filigree around the image with Diamond Stickles.  Here is a list of Copic Markers that I used to color with:  E50, E31, E33, E42, E53, G12, E37, R11, R20, E44, BG93, E43,E41, G82, B00, R02, E21, E00, B0000.

Sentiment is from CTMH.  I cut all the labels with my Cricut, they are from the Lovely Labels Lite cartridge from Walmart.  I have to say that I really like this cartridge for cardmaking.

Have a wonderful evening/day!
