I have been asked by one of the boys in work, to make an anniversary card for his wife, he always wants "sloppy" cards, she is a lovely person.  I always try and do something different to what I normally do. I have used a beautiful image I have had for donkeys years, sorry don't know where from. I have never used it, but felt it right for this card, the jigsaw cutting file is available HERE The rest of the card was done in PS.  I used DecoArt Glamour Dust to give a sparkle, shame it doesn't show in the piccie.. The font is filofax girls.  the inside says - "that makes me complete"

While making it PS stopped playing! to say I panicked is an understatement, thankfully, Son came to the rescue, he has IT skills, but, had to play for about 4 hours on it even reloading a couple of times.  It turned out after me trying to save changes I made when PS was up and working, that something was amiss with all the file I was working on, so had to exit without saving. It seems to want to play nicely with everything else, 'puters ay?  If something had gone altogether, I think you would have heard me screaming from here!  Thankfully it was only PS affected.
Anyhow here's the card.

I will enter the following challenges

Absolutely beautiful! Such a clever idea too.
My PC is annoying me, just stopped working as I was coming to leave this and earlier MCS crashed and I had to do my creation all over again! My sympathies.
