My Star

awhhhh so sopppy!!!!!!!

I will be celebrating my 10th Wedding anniversary on Thursday! less than a week whoo hooo!!! We have planned a family celebration on the Saturday...but hubby and I are taking the day off on Thursday so we can spend it together.......and this is my anniversary card to him.

I love the sentiment, I saw it in a craft stamper magazine a few months ago...and that was the basis for my card. The Font Is Bradley Hand ITC and I Have typed it up in My Craft Studio so I could be a bit more artistic..making some of the words bigger but then being able to bunch them up together e.c.t!! (that's the technical term....LOL)

With the sentiment in mind I chose the star paper from "DCWV- Rockstar" and then I have cut the larger stars out of another paper from the same stack. I went a little mad and covered every side of the card..even the back!!

I have stamped up " WOJ - Tuxedo Charlie " and coloured him with copics and raised him up on 3d foam.

Finally as an extra little touch I have used some of the "Papermania" magnets to make a little strap that you have to open to read the card..not the most imaginative use of the magnet but I think it is a fun little touch...I was going to cleverly hide the magnet but in the end I decided that as it was silver being able see it went well with the look of the card.

The whole card looks quite simple but I quite like the way it turned out and I cant wait to give it to him now!!

This is my entry for:
