Happy Anniversary Mary and Mike

My cousin and her husband have an anniversary coming up and I wanted to make a special card for them. So I went looking for ideas and the first stop I made was my friend Sandy's site. She designed the sketch for the ABC Toys and Craft challenge this week. Hmmm, can I combine a challenge with a card I need to make anyway? YES!!!
I used this wonderful wedding ring stamp from Inkadinkado for my focal point. I colored with Copics N1 and N3 then I air brushed RV34 around it. Then I had to make choices for paper and embellishments to meet the sketch. I pulled out my Lasting Impressions paper (I've made a vow to use stuff I have before buying new lol) and chose the ones I wanted to use. It turns out to be a somewhat monochromatic card, and I'm not sure Mike will like it with all the pink (sorry Sandy). It's really not pink more a rose color. Oh well. I cut the hearts out with Nestabilities and started layering the elements. I had some grey and black rhinestones so I pulled them out and added grey one for my bling.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
