2 year, 2 month and 2 day anniversary

My good friend Rachel got married on 10/10/10.  I made peacock themed invitations and other paper goods for the wedding.  Last year on Rachel and Mike's 1 year, 1 month and 1 day anniversary (11/11/11) I made this card

This year on 12/12/12 they will get this card for their 2 year, 2 month and 2 day anniversary

and then I'm out (Now if there was a 13th month I'd continue this little trend, but 1/13/13 just doesn't have the coolness factor :))

I used the November Sketch For You To Try with vintage damask paper from The Paper Studio (Poetic Postcards pack), Ocean tides and White card stock (PTI) and Peacock Kaylee from SoG
I knew the first time I saw this digi that I wanted to make an anniversary card with it.  I was more than a little intimidated by the coloring but asked for some tips from my Created From Color Basic Coloring class instructor who dazzled me with her release day project.  She sent me the copic list and after completing the class I didn't feel quite so intimidated anymore.

Copics used (via Melissa Andrew)
outfit:  BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78 and E40, E41, E42, E44, E49 and a bit of BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99
skin: E000, E00, E11 
lips and cheeks: R20

For the lace I used a bit of C6 various ink refill and custom dyed some white lace.  I actually got a big stash of lace (some hand-crocheted) from Rachel after her grandmother passed away a few years ago.  I love using that bit of nostalgia on cards for her.  

Thanks for stopping!


  1. This is amazing! Did you put BGs in her hair too? The coloring is breathtaking, for seriously. =o )

    1. Yep I copied the coloring that Melissa did on the SoG release for this image.
