SDC69: Scrap It!

It's time for this week's Stampotique Designer's Challenge!  Today is Jo's turn to host our challenge and here is what she has challenged us with:
"It's my turn to set the theme this week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge so I decided on something that I usually avoid- using photographs along side stamping."
This really was a challenge for me as I usually work with just stamped images - even photo-realistic ones, but still mostly just stamps.  Then I realized that my wedding anniversary is coming up in just a few days and I had an idea to use one of our self-pics to create a special card!  I sort of tried to make it look like a Polaroid and then ran with the colors in the pic to select matching papers.  I'm pleased with the end result and I think he'll like it too.  It's fairly clean and a little mushy - sorta his style! :)
