Not an Anniversay

If I had managed to stay married, today would of been my 23rd wedding anniversary, but since I've been divorce for ten years... it's not!  I suppose the fact that I still remember the date (along with the date of his infidelity and the arrival of my decree absolute) is a testament to the devastation of a broken marriage.  Such a shame when things go wrong!  I suppose this is why I so admire anyone who has remained happily and faithfully married for any number of years!  So Happy (NOT) Anniversary...
I made this today...

All of the materials used are from my stash, promarkers (of course) to colour this digi stamp from 'SATURATED CANARY' she's called 'Nevaeh', all the papers and embellishments (including the promarker touched-up flowers) have been gathering dust in my share room... I've been VERY good today, using up lots of bits!
I followed a sketch from 'SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY' #195 (turned around)...

... and a colour combo from 'DARING CARDMAKERS' Challenge for March 
Even though I've combined a lot of different challenge requirements, I think it turned out pretty well!
