Clean and Simple

Hi, everyone!
My hubby and I are going to be celebrating our ten-year wedding anniversary on May 3, so I've decided to make him a card for every year we've been together. :0) He is a big softie, and actually a bit of a sentimental hoarder. lol! I found a drawer full of things I had given him over the years recently, and it even included things like the cards that come with a bouquet of flowers. Awwww.........
He'd blush is he knew I was telling his secret, so shhhhhhhhh............hehehe!
Anyhow, I recently purchased some things from Doodle Pantry, and I've used two of the items here: the AntsUmbrella image and the Ants Digi-Paper.

The inside sentiment reads "In every life a little rain will fall.....and I'm so glad to have you holding my umbrella". :0) Of course, there's a personal note, too, but that's just between him and me. :0)
I colored my image in with my Prisma Pencils, and I used PSE to add the patterns on the umbrella. I added some paper glaze to all the water of the image.
My copper is a specialty paper and it was cut with my nesties. A very clean, easy layout on the card, but I think it suits the image.
