Outlawz Friday's Alcohol Markers Challenge

TGIF!!  I don't know about you, but I'm glad this week is drawing to a close.  And I'm looking forward to my "date" afternoon with my hubby.  Not sure what mischief we can get into today, but if we go into town, a shopping spree at Michaels might be included.

As it's Friday, it's time for our weekly Outlawz Friday's Alcohol Markers Challenge!  Today's theme is Wedding/Anniversary.  I chose to go with the Anniversary.  This image has been in my stash for awhile, but I hadn't colored it up until now.  The scene reminds me so much of afternoons/evenings spent walking with my hubby along the beaches here in SW Florida.  One evening we even stopped after a fancy dinner out, with me in a cocktail dress and hubby in a sports coat and tie!  We walked, carrying our shoes, and watched a gorgeous pink, teal, and orange sunset.

Anyway, back to the card...  I paired the image with one of my favorite sayings (attributed to Saint Exupery).  Because the image is so busy I kept the embellishments to a minimum. 

Please come play along with the Challenge this week.  We'd love to see your creations!  For some inspiration, you can check out the rest of the design team's cards here.  And our June 2013 sponsor Digistamps 4 Joy is offering 5 digis for one lucky challenge winner!

Have a fun weekend everyone!

P.S.  Thank you to all who sent their sympathies via comments or email.  I do appreciate it, and so does my mom.
