Love boat

Hi everyone, I'm back to share the card I've made for my parents' wedding anniversary...
This is one of my new LOTV stamps and I think it's really sweet. I've coloured with Promarkers with added glitter using Sakura gel pens and have also added glossy accents to the glasses and the bottle. I've adapted the layout from the card I made at copics class which I'll show you in a bit. I've used a Martha Stewart punch for the fancy edge to the papers. The sentiment (also LOTV) was stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers before being inked with faded jeans distress ink. Here are some close-ups...

And here's the card I made with the very talented Kate.
 I would like to enter my anniversary card in the following:-
Ruby's Rainbow - cute animals 
Make it Monday 
 Joanna Sheen - animal crackers
Shopping our stash - something new (stamp)
Always crafting - water
Penny's paper crafty challenge - weddings/anniversaries

Thanks for visiting. I hope you like what you see. Hope to see you soon.
