A Joyous Occasion!

Hello to all! Its time for some mid-challenge inspiration from the Aurora Wings Stella DT for the Joyous Occasions challenge.  I hope you will join us for this fun challenge!

My husband and I will be celebrating 42 years of marriage this month and I thought that this would make a beautiful anniversary card for a best beloved!  The image is coloured mostly with Copic markers and I have added little touches of sparkle pen and glitter detail.

Image Flower Moon from Aurora Wings can be found here:

Happy crafting fun to all!

You can visit the Aurora Wings Challenge here.

First of all, a huge congrats on your 42nd Anniversary, Laine and what a gorgeous creation you've made for your hubby! I absolutely adore your color scheme and the fabulous detail you've achieved with Mitzi's stunning image. Love how you've offset the mat which enhances the crescent shape of the florals and lovely subtle background DP. Fabulous in every way. I would think it just may bring tears to his eyes (I'm getting kind of misty myself.) What a beautiful tribute to your special love story. xxD

First and foremost, congratulations to you and your hubby on your 42 years of marriage! That's fantastic! And your anniversary card is spectacular. Your gorgeous coloring on the image in a red and purple palette is dreamy! The sentiment is perfect and so is the placement. Softer colors in the background paper complement the main circle beautifully. Thank you so much for this spectacular inspiration for today's post at Aurora Wings, Laine! Mitzi xxx
