Anniversary Card for a Very Special Person...

My husband Mark :) - it's our 26th Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday & this is the card I made for him. It took ages to make - you know how sometimes you just can't find the right image, the right colours, or the right paper etc.... & of course being a man he wouldn't want flowers or ribbons (well I know some men might lol but not Mark). Anyway I did manage to finish it & there are elements I like & some I'm not so pleased with, but hay hoe hopefully he will like it.

The papers are mostly from the Sweet Shoppe but the strip of owls is from Summer Driggs. I distressed the edges of everything. The image is from Pink Cat Studio & coloured with Prisma pencils & some glimmer chalks. I made the sentiment on the computer & the ticket is a digi download from Becs (I'm loving these at the moment). I finished off with some string & a chunky heart brad.

I'm entering this card for 6 challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch!
Everybody-Art - Song Title (I Will Always Love You)
Our Creative Corner
- Look Ma! No Flowers!
Quixotic - How Distressing!
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes!
Prairie Fairy - Go Twiggy

I seldom create comments, however i did some searching and wound up here
"Anniversary Card for a Very Special Person...".

And I do have a few questions for you if you do
not mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of these
comments look like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social
sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.

Could you list of the complete urls of all your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
