Designed2Delight Challenge - Anniversary

It's the Designed2Delight Design Team Challenge that starts today.  And we are asking for Anniversary cards. I need this challenge, because I don't seem to ever think of making anniversary cards. Maybe you need prompting too?

For this challenge, you may use any image, or a Designed2Delight image. And as you probably know, you have the chance to win a Designed2Delight image!  All the details are on the D2D blog.

Hmmm, what image should I use for an anniversary card, I wondered? I chose D2D's "Drew's Cupcake". I liked the fact that he had lots of presents.  (my kind of guy!)
He is colored with Ranger Distress Inks, which I have been neglecting for quite a while. I had to get out of my 'rut' and do a bit of water-coloring.  Also did some paper piecing for the presents.

Wow, has it been ages since I used Dew Drops!  For awhile everyone was using them and when I finally get some, they aren't the rage anymore.  Well, tough, I thought this card could be enhanced with a row of them.  So typical for me, being behind the times!!
