Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad

Hello everyone.  I've got a card today that I made for my Mum and Dad's Anniversary... their 62nd; a long time by anyone's measure!!
 I used the oh-so-fab Gus & Stella image "One Person To Annoy" from Bugaboo... my Mum and Dad have a wicked sense of humour and got a good chuckle from it, Crazy 4 Challenges theme this time is Cards that bring a smile to your face, no problem, I'm in :-) I coloured the image with Copics adding some Stickles to Stella's slippers and the heart and gloss to the glasses.
I've used the sketch from the Stella Says Sketch challenge this time around, great sketch, I've been very literal with it too.  The papers are from my stash, I think the black with pink foil hearts is from Kaiser, but I'm not sure. Digital Tuesday and Simon Says Challenge want to see hearts (plenty of hearts here!) and Creative Craft Challenges has Hugs and Kisses as their theme so I'm entering there too.  
The black paper with raised dots is from Starfish Lane, as is glittery black and the fuschia velvet paper... it's a shame the lush texture doesn't show in the pics.  I cut the border with Martha Stewart's Doily Hearts punch.  I added some acrylic hearts that I coloured with Copics and some diamante trim I got last year in Malaysia, also black pearls from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated, I love the sentiment that comes with the image "I love being married; It's great to find that one special person you can annoy for the rest of your life", but it was just too big in the end, lol.
Paper Crafting JourneyCute Card ThursdayStamping With The DragonMy Time to CraftSweet Stampin'Di's Digi Designs and My Mums Craft Shop all have Valentines/Love challenge themes, so I'm entering them and The Pink Elephant has this great Photo inspiration so I'm entering my "hearty" creation there too.
The inside of the card is finished with elements from the front of the card... as usual, lol.
One Stop Craft ChallengeBearly Mine ChallengesCatch the Bug and Papertake Weekly all have Anything Goes challenges running so I'll be entering them as well.
Well that's about it for today's card, I may get some crafty time in tomorrow; my hubby is working in the morning... he tries hard not to work on weekends (he certainly did his share when we were younger) but he didn't get today's job finished so he has to go back.  It's really hot tomorrow too, 38+ yukky for working outside, it's near the beach though so he may get the sea breeze - it's forecast 42C on Sunday, at least he's not working then too; though my son Chris is, he's doing" a Christening (he's a photographer) and it's in the hills - no chance of a sea breeze up there, poor old Chris!
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna

Hi Donna,

Such a pretty card - beautiful papers and fun image. I think the sentiment that came with it is my hubby's motto :)

Too bad we couldn't average our temperatures - it would be bearable for both of us.

Hugs, Dawn
