~Lili Of The Valley...Love Grows..Inspired by my fabulous friend Wendy~

Happy Monday night to everyone!!! I swear it's only May 2nd, and it feels like it's been May for a few weeks now. It seems like April and May has been like a run on in my home If it's not ONE thing, it's a million I tell ya!! Anyways, I'm running late, as usual, but wanted to post my card that I made for my husband for our 19th Anniversary today and then it's on to another card that I'll be posting hopefully tomorrow...God willing!

 Anyways, this card was inspired by my dear friend Wendy, and you can find all her wonderful creations HERE and her Etsy store is HERE! She has been such an inspiration to me over the past year or so since I came across her blog through a challenge she entered, that I will never be able to thank her enough for all her help, tips and advice. I may not always take her shopping advice I try and she tries to save me money, and my husband thanks her for it, but I'm stubborn in that department still lol So thank you Wendy, yet again for being my inspiration with this project!! You can find her beautiful card that this card was CASE'd from HERE.
 So be sure to look at some of those projects folks are entering in all of these challenges. You never know what creative talents you'll come across. I have learned so much from so many in the blogging and challenge world!! Speaking of challenges, we have a great one at Craft Us Crazy right now... Moms and Flowers..and I think this card fits that theme perfectly!!! 
 The printed papers that I used are from the Basic Grey line... Lollipop Shoppe. The solid metallic type paper is from DCVW..I'll have to see which's leaving my brain right now. The beautiful image is from Lily Of the Valley called Love Grows and you can find it HERE.  The Happy Anniversary sentiment is from the Love Sentiments set at Doodle Pantry and it can be found HERE. I changed it from black to a deep red and put a drop shadow on it, hopefully you can see it. I colored this beauty with Copics, and I have to say this is probably one of the first images that I've colored that I've really liked, and hope you do as well!!
Thanks for looking and I hope to see you joining us over at Craft Us Crazy!! We have some great sponsors this challenge, so head over and check out all details!! Let me just say..
