Mark & Carol's 35th Anniversary

Our good friends are celebrating their 35th Anniversary and I thought this was the perfect image for them!  This is Stella and Gus from Bugaboo and can be purchased for $3.00.  I colored them with copics, glossy accents for their glasses, and cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched rectangle die.   DP from Doodlebug Designs, coral and green cs from Smith Crafts.  I didn't have any matching ribbon, so I colored white ribbon with the same color as her dress, sentiment heat embossed with black embossing powder, gems from The Paper Studio, and walnut stain distress ink.

A traditional gift for 35th anniversary is coral, modern gift is jade, and gem stone is I chose my color pattern.
