Wishing Anniversary Card

Here is a card I made for my parents' recent 50th wedding anniversary. I colored the main image with Copic markers, then added some Stickles to the stars. I was rather proud of how the hair turned out. I printed the sentiment on my computer, stamped the heart circle and stars, watercolored the blue background, and colored the stars with Copics. I added some Spica glitter (clear pen) to the stars but it doesn't show up in the photo. I cut out the circle and lace design behind the sentiment with Nestibilities - ditto for the main image.

By the way, I almost always cut out my cards and envelopes with my Sizzix dies. Usually I use the Movers & Shapers Pro Dies Card A7 and Envelope A7. I like these larger cards (5x7) especially for Magnolia images since they take up quite a bit of space (a bit too much for A6 sized cards - which are closer to 4x6).
