Mo's Challenge #129

Your Choice!

For Mo's Challenge this week our hostess, Iulia, has given us the choice between following a great sketch or doing whatever catches our fancy. I thought the sketch was great, so that's what inspired my card this week.

Our 46th anniversary is coming up in May, so I made a card for my husband. This couple could be us! He's tall and thin, and I'm.....well....not! We'll leave it at that! LOL!
After our very first date, I told my mother that I was going to marry him. She asked me if he knew it yet, and I told her, "No, but he will!"
The poor guy never had a chance! A little over a year later we were married in a little brown church not far from where we live now. He's the best thing that ever happened to me, and I think he likes me a little, too!

I love his sparkling blue eyes!

Here's the sketch, if you choose to use it for inspiration.

Tools: Copics, Cuttlebug with Sizzix embossing  folder, Mounting tape, Tacky Tape, Distressing tool, SU! Creamy Caramel ink pad

Papers: SU! Poppy Parade, Close to Cocoa, Neenah smooth white, My Mind's Eye Stella DP
Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Natural cotton lace, Wooden button, Baker's twine

Please join us this week! Make something wonderful using one of Mo's fantastic images and enter for the chance to win a gift certificate to her shop. She gives one certificate for every fifty entries, so tell your friends, too!

I love it when you visit!
