11th Anniversary Card - Forever & Always

This is the card I made for Mike for our wedding anniversary. I like to keep things simple for him, but I also like trying new things on his cards because he doesn't mind experimentation. I was inspired by a recent image coloured by Forgotten Scraps and I used my coloured pencils to mimic the white pencil used for shading of the skin. I wanted it to still be more flesh coloured though so I added a few more pencils. I then used simple prints from my Gossamer Blue paper kit that had arrived that day. Inside the card I wrote: "If I had to choose between loving you and breathing I would use my last breath to say "I love you". Mike gave me a nice, tight hug when I gave the card to him. :) It was a bit hard to put this card together, since it's so important, and to find the perfect thing to say too. Do you ever feel that pressure when making cards for that someone special?

Stay Crafty,
Aeryn

    1. Thanks, Faye. It was kind of hard to do, since with her all huddled up the shadows are weird, but it's a first attempt. I'll definitely try again!
