Anniversary card

Today is mine and my husband's 9th anniversary...boy, where does time go. Anyway, this is the card I made for him. The image is a digi from C.C.Designs. I followed a sketch at The Pink Elephant and I'm really liking this look, it's me, simple and cute. An even better thing about this card... it's made almost entirely out of scraps... the only part I cut new is the base of the card, how cool is that! I paper-pieced the outfits and hair and, can I say, that was very time consuming and my fingers were quite sore when I was done but, I really like how it turned out. Besides The Pink Elephant challenge there's a couple more this qualifies for and you can see them below. Thanks for looking! ~Autumn
