MY MANE EVENT




Hi!!

Today Miguel and me are celebrating our 12th anniversary.  We have had a great time through all these years.... that means there has been ups and downs but the net equation always stays on the bright and positive side.  I made this card to celebrate that "Our Circus" is up and running at full blast.  I could have made a very elegant and romantic card... but that's just not my style so I kept it as true to my identity as possible.  After all, my sense of humor is one of the best things my hubby loves about me ;)

I have to tell you he made me laugh to the point of tears.  First he asked me what moved me to use an encaged cross-eyed Lion for his anniversary card.  Hmmmmm.... He's been kind of encaged for the last twelve years right??  Anyway, I was out of trouble as soon as I told him I fell in love with that lion at first sight and that reminded me of him.... 
That's as sappy as I can get ;)

An now let's go back to my card.

I am submitting it to the TAWS Be Inspired Challenge #10.


AND.............

I used Sweet Sunday's sketch #166. As soon as I saw this sketch I thought about a window card.  I love them because I can use the same main element to decorate both the inside and outside of the card.   For all the layers I created an SVG file and use my digital cutter to cut all the elements on the front of the card.


Here is my card:


And some details:



Hope you have a great Sunday.  
I am going to get ready now because we are going out to celebrate our big day.  

Thanks for the visit!!!

Hugs,
