Never Ending Story

A couple of very special people are celebrating over 50 years of marriage this very day. I wanted to make them an anniversary card that let them know what a wonderful couple I think they are. I rummaged through some images that I've received in trades and found this cute Hanglar one. I think it's perfect with the saying.

The saying is printed out on my computer in a font called Liberty.
I colored with copics and added some chalk to the background and glitter pen to the wings. I notched the corners of the main image with a punch and then wrapped some metallic thread that has some pink undertones to it around the edges. I added a little bit of highlights to the cheeks with a white gel pen. Magnolia says to do that with their images, so I tried it!

We have had such wonderful weather the last couple of days, but they are calling for a drastic drop in temps tonight. I'm looking forward to it; cold weather outside and a nice warm fire inside! I hope you are all staying warm and enjoying your Sunday!

I will be taking a break from blogging during the next week so that I can celebrate Christmas with my family. I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas and I promise to have some fun stuff to show you when I come back! Thanks for looking!
