Happy 59th to my hubby

After 59 years we do not always make a big deal of anniversaries, but I did want to make a card this time.  Hubby has had a slow recovery from back surgery and can use a little extra attention.  I am so blessed to be married to him.  It is hard to know he is still in a lot of pain.  The surgery helped what it was supposed to, but other pain probably cannot be fixed.
I found this image in my digi file - I listed the source as The Doodle Garden, but now I cannot locate them on line.  I colored with chalk pencils which work well for me with printer ink!  The sentiment is part of the image, but I cut them apart and separated them with twine - this fits the sketch, which I rotated.  The corners (EK Success) and border (Martha Stewart) are punches.
