Our Anniversary Card :)


This month Neil and I celebrate our 15th Anniversary (to quote a chef I use to work with "you get less for murder here in Australia" LOL) so I thought I would make an anniversary card for him ... now I know he is expecting something to do with bicycles (since we both are mad about cycling) but I recieved some Bugaboo digital stamps and I just love their Stella & Gus range (in fact all their Stella, Marge, Gus etc ranges) - they are so funny and I love a good chuckle when it comes to handmade cards and this card is perfect for the "make us laugh" challenge over at Quirky Crafts ... so here is my card using Stella and Gus 'instructions and mute' ...

I used the sketch from Feeling Sketchy ...
 
and my colour inspiration comes from The Pink Elephant photo ...

materials - Bazzill kraft, C'D dutchess, AC sapphire cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'watermelon gazpacho' and Kaisercraft 'nans favourite' papers; Bugaboo digital stamps 'stella and gus instructions and mute'; Carl scallop scissors; Spellbinders petite scallop circles large nesties; Crayola pencils; button.
Thanks for looking.
