Happy Anniversary to the perfect duet

Today is my parent's 52nd Wedding Anniversary. They will be coming back from a vacation in Mexico for a week. I made this card for them from Art Impressions using Perfect Duet Set.  I added some Distress Oxide Ink to the edges of the one layer card and then to the inside edges.  As well as some glossy accents on the curing iron and glasses and bling for the earring and robe button. Now my Dad is not bald and is proud that he doesn't have much gray hair so I had to add hair to the image.

Hello Gnome

I have so many designs of things that I want to do, but then I get caught up with having to make the required cards for my DT work, family/friend birthdays/events and then that regular job that interferes with my crafting. So I was so excited today when I got a chance to make a fun card for my OWN stash. This is using mint and black some colors that I really like.  I took an image that from Pattie's Creations Party Gnomes and only used one of them. I added Glossy Accents to the heart.
