For the Man in my Life...Allsorts 17

Another Mo's Digital Pencil image, this time for Allsorts Challenge 17

The brief is to make a card for 'the man in your life'.
Well, Nic's been manacled to me for over 36 years now (not counting 'courting') so I thought this image suited us perfectly!
It's not our anniversary again until next year now but, y'know, I think I'll just write him a lickle poem and give it to him anyway, just to show I am going to keep him after all.....

My usual 21cm square (...boring person aren't I...?) card in white then faced with a lovely printed and foiled cardstock 1cm smaller all round so to leave a white border.
This I trimmed with a couple of different laces and braids.
The image, as I said, is a digistamp from Mo called 'Jack & Ginger' which I have coloured with copics in neutral colours (...the 'greige' of the ubiquiteous pensioner...!) except for her hat and the flowers he's brought her which are bright red!
I've mounted this with 3D foam squares on a DCWV Luxury Mat and used a corner punch.
This whole I've also mounted onto the card with 3D foam squares.
The flowers (just punchies) and leaves (MS & Leonie M punches) I've adhered with Pinflair Glue Gel.
The message is my own Eiglas stamp and is also mounted on DCWV Luxury Mat.
BTW, the message is finished off inside....but you'll have to guess how! LOL!
Thanks for looking - I hope you like it!
