An Anniversary Card

This week, Creative Craft Challenges is being sponsored by Stitchy Stamps. It's their first anniversary, and as a result, the theme this time is anniversaries. Now my oh and I are due to celebrate a 'big' anniversary next year. Unfortunately, the date's at the end of a really busy cardmaking period, and I often end up leaving it to the last minute and struggling to do something I like. So, seeing this challenge, I decided to get ahead of the game!

The image is from Stitchy Stamps and it's called 'The Raggedies'. Very appropriate, really, since both my oh and I could be considered to be 'past our best'! It's a lovely image to colour, which I've done with promarkers, and mounted it on mirri-silk type card. The background paper was designed in Photoshop Elements, as was the sentiment, and the hearts were punched.

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew who are looking for punches,
Sketchy Colors whose sketch I followed,
Incy Wincy where 'Anything Goes',
One Stop Craft Challenge where 'Anything Goes'
The Stamp Man who want 'Cards for Men' (It's for my husband.)
Crafty Purple Frog where 'Anything Goes'

And if you've started your Christmas crafting, don't forget that this week's One Stitch at a Time challenge is ... Christmas!
