Happy Anniversary

I needed an anniversary card for Sunday. A couple in our church has been married for 50 years. What a wonderful testimony to the power of love - theirs and God's. Of course I had to use a couple of Magnolia images.




I just love this couple. Everything was colored with copics. I have to say I love the way that Edwin's shirt came out. Lots of stickles everywhere. The butterfly border on the bottom was done with a die cut by memory box. The dp is basic grey.
I even decorated the inside a bit, something I rarely do.

I made this for the following challenges:
flutterby Wednesday to use butterflies and their sketch here
Magnolia-licious Challenge to use black and white and one other color here
wedding challenge at Magnolia-licious here (what is an anniversary but a wedding that has lasted.)
And for the using the sketch by Carly I entered it here.
Hope you enjoy.
