So happy together (2)

For my second anniversary card I used the same Karen's Doodles image that I used for my previous card, again coloured with my new Spectrum Noir pens. For the background, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I inked the inside of the embossing folder with Antique Lnen distress ink before placing my white cardstock and running it through the machine. I then wiped the embossing folder clean, dabbed some Faded Jeans distress ink on the EF and pressed it together again by hand.

For the layout, I used this week's sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Ooh La La – Anniversary (2nd entry)
Karen's Doodles Intl – Anything goes (plus KD image)
Crafty Catz – Ribbons
Charisma Cardz – Inspired by a song (So happy together)
