My Wedding Anniversary!

It will be my 36th wedding anniversary on Tuesday and this is the card I have made for my husband. (He doesn't look at blogs so I'm perfectly safe in posting this before the day.)
I used the theme of J - for Jigsaws at the ABC Challenge to add a little interest to the backing paper. I cut out the pieces, distressed the edges a little and then put them back together again, numbering the pieces on the back, so that I didn't get into too much of a pickle! As I used ink for this I'm including it in the challenge from Alphabet challenges which this week is ink!
The image is Hanglar and I think it's so cute. I coloured it in Christmassy coloured Copics as our anniversary is so close to Christmas. These colours are also those selected by Charisma cardz this week, together with white, so this is for that challenge too!
The sentiment was done on the computer and both mounts are made from Nesties.
I hope he likes it!
We are off to sing carols at the Christmas Market held a Victorian Farm located nearby. It's great fun but usually very chilly in the farmyard, so we come home to hot mulled wine and soup!
