Bugaboo Anniversary Card

Hi! Thursday is our 39th wedding anniversary, so I made a humorous card for Jack. 

He prefers SIMPLE - 
                                    NO GLITTER - (imagine that!) - 
                                                                                          and lots of SILLINESS. 

I found the perfect image at Bugaboo Stamps, and used some of the colors in their inspiration photo.
It is a 5x7 card (A7), colored with Copic Markers.

I wasn't sure if this qualifies for Clean and Simple since it has layers. 
If it is perfectly flat, does that make it CAS?

I am participating in the following challenges:

  • Catch the Bug Challenge (April 25 - May 1) Inspiration Photo at left (used the colors in the carrots, greenery, orange, gold shed, brown wagon, mountains and dress color blue-purple)  5/1

Thanks for the fun challenge AND the perfect image, Jodie!

What a cute card! We just celebrated our 25th anniversary so I can really relate to this card. Blessings to you and happy anniversary.

NanaConnie said...

Congratulations on the upcoming #39, Donna! Layers or not, this absolutely DOES qualify as CAS -- minimal embellishments and lots of open space. Perfect! Love how you colored everything so that even with the focus being on the sentiment, it's so very colorful. I love Bugaboo Stamps and have a ton of them! Knowing how much digis weigh when stored in the hard drive, you can imagine how many that must be. :-D

Morning Donna,

I'm trying to play catch up after the op and typically Bloggers on one at the moment and not showing photos so just seen the thumbnail on my reading list, but looks like another beauty from there.

Awwww, happy upcoming 39th anniversary! He's gonna get a kick out of this card. It cracks me up! I love all Bugaboo images, but this line in particular. I have a coffee image like this and it's hilarious. Your coloring is so great! I really like how you outlined some of the letters. Makes me want to print mine and color it again!

Hello, Donna! So sorry I missed this card the first time around. I haven't been around much this week and haven't had much time on the computer. But I saw that you won over at Catch the Bug this morning and couldn't believe this was one of your cards - it is so different than your usual style! I think it's a wonderful card for your hubby - I love this image and sentiment - too funny! Your colouring is beautiful! By the way, Happy Anniversary!
