Forty -Third Anniversary Card

Simon Says: Wedding/Anniversary
 Hello kind friends!  I was so afraid of using this set but knew I wanted to, for our 43 wedding anniversary  ( mostly why I bought it).
I think I was afraid I couldn't do as well as Betsy, ( and I cant) but I decided that is ok.

 I totally used Betsy's card for my inspiration and I also used her ideas. Like embossing the walkway with the stencil, when you run your hand over it you can feel each rock. I used sponge daubers with oxide inks on the walk way. I used my zig pens to color the people and a bit of the grass . The grass seemed too harsh so I ran a lightly inked dauber to soften it up.

The sky is also done very quickly with a lightly inked dauber.

I cant wait to use this set from The Greetery  again. ( no fear just fun) I wanted to add the dogs but didn't have much time to create this card. I was amazed how easy this was to make .

I am very blessed to be married to my best friend! He is a wonderful husband, great father and papa ! Not to mention one of the hardest working guys I know and love.  He can make me laugh till I can't breathe. We have received many graces making it through the tough times.

 God Bless You All
