The oddest Anniversary card ever?

OK, so my brief for this anniversary card was for a workmate's husband who's a bit geeky with glasses and loves books and their cat!  (Her words, not mine!) Think I have it covered there ;)

I used a few sets from Paper Smooches - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to his boots and specs.
Peel off sentiment ... went a bit wonky though, think my '12' maybe isn't on a matching slant to the words?

My card was inspired by Tracey's card over at the Muse Challenge .. I used her general layout with an image in the bottom corner, sentiment in the top, and a coloured base.  I had a little snippet of green card left, so used my Paper Smooches heart die to add a bit of love to the card!

  2. I think I would have had a much harder time fulfilling that brief! You've done a grand job of it, and I bet Tony loves it (and his wife for giving it to him).
