Lots of Anniversarys in JUNE

Seems like many of our friends are celebrating anniversary's this month!!  Luckly for me there are a few challenges going on that have inspired me to make a few much needed cards!!!  Fantabulous Challenge Me Monday  being one of them!!!  Okay i thought using a sun I can do that!!!  Well another couple who we golf with at least once a week celebrated their 44th anniversary and I thought well that is something to crow about right!!!  Just Because Cards has a fun crow on it that I thought would announce this remarkable accomplishment!!!  I also cut the sentiment out from this cart!!!  The rising sun is found on Country Life.  I did some embossing on both the rooster and the ground to give it some pop.  Did some layering with pop dots for depth also.  Inked up some of the edges with old paper distress inks.  and found some flocked brads and a acrylic sticker I had in my stash.  As usual I made this card as a 5 x 7 basically because i hate working tiny tiny!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Let me know what you think!!!

This is fabulous!! I love the fun bright colours and the large sentiment. And 44 years - that's terrific! I always LOVE hearing stories of couples that stay together. What a super card to share in their joy!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fantabulous Cricut!

Thanks for the great inspiration of your card. I need to make a card for my parent's 60th anniv. and I hope you don't mind if I copy it pretty much intact!? LOL
