11th Anniversary card for my hubby

Hello there crafting friends,

I have a card for you with a little bit of  an "adult humor" heehee the image is sweet... just my mind is a little... well twisted LOL. My hubby and I have been together since high school and married 3 years ago. So when some of our old buddies see us they think we've been together for eternity. Our wedding vows say to be together "until death do us part" and we were thinking like wth! lol I still want to be with you beyond that (is that weird?) So what perfect image to use the Addams couple heehee. Wait, did they ever die in the story? I don't know... but I thought the sentiment was rather funny and I know he'll like it. Enough rambling here is the card:

The digi images are from Simply Betty Stamps. 
Christian Addams digi
and Betty Addams digi

I made him tall he's 6'2'' and I'm... well I'm under 5' lol. I flipped 
Betty Addams so she looks like she's looking at Christian Addams.
(Note: Christian's hair is not curly/wavy but I have permission from 
Betty Roberts the owner of Simply Betty stamps for 
changing only the hair texture for this particular card)

This is when I was done coloring. 
All skin tones and flowers are done with Copic markers
and the the clothing is done with Spectrum Noirs.

I used a recipe for this card from Designed to Color 
but we had to hunt for the recipe ingredients.
I hope I got them all correct. 

  • A colored image: I colored Christian Addams and Betty Addams
  • Something Doodled: I "doodled his curly/wavy hair" I also doodled little white stars. 
  • Bling Bling! I used bling for her "wedding ring" and on the left corner. 
  • 2 or more patterned papers: I used 4 (LOL) all from DCWC the immortal love stack
  • twine: I have one holding the Love you charm that I "died" red with a Copic marker.
I had fun coloring the image; the sketch for the card was a little challenging for me but my hubby likes the card. Hope you like it too. Thank you so much for stopping by.
