Today I want to show you this card that I made for my Mother & Father In Law's Wedding Anniversary.

I chose this lovely image by Mo Manning called Siku & Shiya.  It may not be the first stamp you would think of for a Wedding Anniversary card, but I think it works perfectly.

I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured it using my Copic Markers.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges: 

Stamp Something - Celebrate Something
Cute Card Thursday - Someone Special
DP2 Challenge - Flowers
ABC Challenge - U is for Unused Stash (The stamp is my unused stash - I've had it for ages and only used it now!!)
Totally Papercrafts - Wedding / Anniversary
Die Cut Dreams - Shabby Chic



Stamp: Mo Manning Siku & Shiya
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Papers & Card: From my Stash 
Tools: Nesties Large & Small Circles and Small & Large Long Deckled Rectangles with Sizzix Big Shot.  Single Hole Puncher.   
Embellishments: Lace, Flowers, Feather, Pins and Ribbon from my stash.  Ticket - Tim Holtz Adage Tickets   

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you like it. 

Have a great weekend.

i love this image which does seem very appropriate for a mature wedding anniversary - they hardly want someone snogging LOL - rubbing/touching noses is lovely and affectionate.
