Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

My parents will be celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary on the 25th and I wanted to create a card just for them.  I am a little late in mailing this since it has to travel from WA to UT...but they won't mind.  I will give  them both a quick email and phone call on the "day" so they will know I didn't forget.  I am their one & only so it is all up to me!

I decided to use this super sweet image by Elizabeth Bell and Bells 'n Whistles Stamps called Sweet Love.  Isn't that just perfect?  Summer, the owner of Belles 'n Whistles is one of four stores in the US that is working exclusively with EB and her stamps are just super cute.  
I dp I used is from K&Co. called Classic K (I think).  I just love all the colors and paper choices this pack had.  I tried to keep it neutral so my dad didn't get something too feminine.  I am learning more & more about shading with my copic markers.  The cardstock I used is from PTI and on their website they have a chart that tells you what color copics work in conjunction with their colors.  For me that is a tremendous help.

I added a close up shot of the image so you can really see the cuteness factor!  I used this week's sketch by Jen del Muro.  I just love her sketches & decided to give it a try for this card.  She has some lovely ideas on her website.  
Have a lovely rest of the weekend and don't forget the LOST series finally is tomorrow night.  This is a must see and I am sad to see it leave the air but I know the ending will be great.  Have a lovely evening.
