My First Easel Card...Happy Anniversary

I believe that I may be the only one left in the stamping community that hasn't attempted an easel card. Why did I wait so long? They are super easy!! I guess it was the fear of the unknown! Today, Meredith and I had the whole day at home to ourselves to do absolutely nothing. So, of course, we stole some time in the craft room. We crafted away watching both the Suite Life of Zach and Cody and Little House on the Prairie...now there is a mixture of TV shows!!

I used this cute little couple from CC Designs from their last kit (BTW, they have a new one out for half price...it's SUPER CUTE!)!
Two challenges for this card:
Cute Card Thursday #104 - Anniversary card

Card Details:
Stamps: Couple from Swiss Pixies by CC Designs; sentiment from More Great Greetings by SU
Paper: June Bug by Basic Grey; Riding Hood Red and Basic Black by SU
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copic markers (B21, 24; E00, 01, 30, 31, 33, 51, 53; R22, 24; C00, 03; N5, 9); Martha Stewart Daisy border punch; Nestabilities
