Ridiculously Fablous

5 Years!

My husband and I have been married for 5 years today! It really has gone so fast, I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun!
I just wanted to share the card I made for him. I usually have so much trouble making masculine cards and I feel like every card I have ever made him is mushy and lovey-dovey. So I made him a fun one this time around! It also meets the requirements for the Imaginisce May Challenge and Scrapbook Steals MCM #31! Yay!

The front of the card.
 
I decided to use the Imaginisce Animal Crackers collection. I love the colours in it!
I stamped the base cardstock with a white chalk-ink pad and the Imaginisce ticket stamp. The blue paper is actually part of the packaging for the canvas stickers, it's just too cute to throw away! (& I love the glossy finish on it!) I also used the Life is a Circus Stamp from Imaginisce for my sentiment & added some gems with my i-rock. The monkey is a canvas sticker, and the tickets are from the border strip, I just cut out the ones I wanted to use.
 I also used pop-dots to add some dimension to the layers.

The inside. Sorry the picture isn't so clear, I had to use my point & shoot camera for this one and it wasn't cooperating with me!
I used the monkey snag'em stamp on white cardstock and coloured her in and cut it out. I love that there are boy & girl monkeys in this collection because it works perfectly for this! What a cute monkey couple ;)
I also used my Silhouette to sketch the writing. It says "And there's no-one else I'd rather enjoy it with! I love you! Happy 5th anniversary!"

Thanks for stopping by!
