Anniversary Card

This anniversary card is for my sister-in-law and her husband.  My hubby is the change of life baby in his family so his sister got married when he was 5 years old.  He doesn't remember a time when she wasn't married.  She collects Precious Moments figurines so I did a search for free Precious Moments coloring pages and came across this darling image.  I colored it in the soft pastels associated with the figurines. 
I used my new shabby pink embossing enamel from Stampendous.  That stuff is so much fun to work with.  It is a little different than the embossing I have done in the past since this is chunky and needs to be heated from underneath.  I already have plans for more projects using this and it may just become as much of a staple in my crafting as my copics and extreme glitter paint.  If you are interested in trying it out for yourself, I got mine from 7kids college fund.  I used the gift card I received when I won their It's Just Wrong challenge when I turned Tilda into a zombie.
I used two othe new crafting items for this card.  It has been awhile since I did some crafty shopping so I dug out my gift cards and had some fun!
