Happy Anniversary Kip

Thanks for all the anniversary wishes. Today is our actual anniversary, we have been married four years. I have had this image for a while, as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use it for an anniversary card. This is a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Jack and Ginger. There are some pretty incredible drawings in her collection and there are new ones all the time. After printing the image, I colored it with Copic markers. I decided to sponge around the image because the bright white panel was just a bit much with the paper that I had already picked out. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Once Upon a Time pack and so is the sentiment.

One thing we like to do is play along with the "traditional" wedding gift for each year and come up with something creative to go along with that theme. The gift for this year is fruit or flowers. Not the easiest thing to come up with a gift for a guy. I finally came up with making this tin of candy covered Oreos. They have a flower on the top! They were a little hard to get a picture of though. We are off to dinner now!
