Not your typical anniversary card...

You will probably agree with me that this is not your typical anniversary card. I made this for my darling husband of 38 years. When I first saw this image from Fred She Said I knew what I wanted to do for my husband's card and what I wanted to say on it. We both like the color red, and he's always liked old vehicles. For years he's wanted a specialty tag for his truck like this one, but neither of us want to pay an additional $85 or so each year, so now he's happy. LOL! I colored the truck with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.

I cut the mats, the hearts and the "happy anniversary" on the inside of the card with my Cricut. I used one of my favorite MS punch-around-the-corner sets to cut around the white papers on the inside. I've included close ups of the inside of the card and the inside of the heart (which I couldn't get to clear up for some reason or another).

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
