Anniversary Card for Jon and Angela

Well, I suddenly realized that I hadn't entered the anniversary card I made for my daughter and SIL into any challenges. Silly of me, don't you think? So I am rectifying that right now, before the challenges close. Before I list them, here are the deets:
Saturated Canary Puppy Love printed on MICBC and colored with Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Eyes: B91, B93
Hair: E31, E33, E35, YR20
Stockings/Petticoat/Apron/Shirt/Shoes: E40, E42, E44, E47, E49
Bow/Dress/Stockings: V12, V15, V17
Jeans: B91, B95, B97, B99
Stockings/Belt/Petticoats: R11, R14, R17

The DP is from the Prima Engraver collection; I distressed it with my Zutter and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I added Tim Holtz Alpha Tiles, Stampin' Up Vanilla Flower Trim, a key charm, twine, a chipboard clock, burlap, cardboard, cheesecloth, and a chipboard dragonfly. And, of course, there are die-cuts. These are the dies I used:

Poppystamps Bookcase & Attic Keys
MFT Chevron Stripes
MFT Fishtail Flags Stax
MFT Mini Film Strip
MFT Mini Tabs Foursome
Memory Box Typewriter #'s
Cheery Lynn Italian Flourish and Mini Italian Flourish Doilies

We had the granddaughters for Saturday night and enjoyed their company. My, they are growing up fast! And Jon and Angela stayed overnight at The Boulders and had dinner at Binkley's. What a great celebration for them! And, yes, they did love their meal! (How could you not at Binkley's?)

So here are the challenges I am entering with this card:

I'll be back tomorrow with a DT card.
