Great Minds Drink Alike!

That's the sentiment inside this card. I just love this image. Last weekend K.I.S.A. (knight in shining armour) and I went away for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We went up to Stratford, Ontario to the Shakespeare Festival.

I had heard about a little stamp store in Chatham, Ontario called The Paper Pickle, which just happened to be on the way to Stratford. What a great little store with lots of cool stamps as well as tons of Bellas. I fell in love and just had to pick up the stamp called "Happy Couple" among a few other goodies. They are all dressed up for a night out. Her dress has some sparkle on it and the glasses all have some crystal effects on them. The flower on her hat has some bling on it. I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The punch at the bottom is a Martha punch.
Since this store is a great place to go for a Day Trip, I'm sure I'll be heading back there one day soon. Anyone want to tag along??
Hope you enjoy the card.
