Our Anniversary Comes Round Again

Morning all, today makes two occasions. The first and most important is that of our sixth Wedding Anniversary. I still count my blessings each day, for many reasons I won't bore you with. Romantic I'm not, appreciative and grateful that he is in my life.... yes.
The second occasion - this day marks the start of the Smeared & Smudged Bloody Valentine Hop.
I have the honour of representing Rick St Dennis' Airless Chambers today.
The pics - sorry about the glare. Taking pics when the only daylight I see is while I'm on my breaks at work is trying, to say the least, at this time of year.
This is the card that will be given to hubs to mark this momentous day in our lives. Before you ask, yes he will appreciate the image *wink*
I chose Rick's "Handcuffs" image. Coloured with Graph-It pens. (Loving these)
Saucy, isn't she!

The wings are die cut and painted with luminarte paints. There is more of this mica loaded paint spattered over the card, applied before attaching my gal. For those that didn't realise, my married name is "Angel" and it's a little joke between us that I am the "Fallen Angel" - hence the wings falling off. Take what ever symbology you like from the handcuffs and chains but there is a get-out there with the key.
The crackle is a Sheena Douglass stamp, The {Naughty or Nice}from hobbycraft.

More gorgeous projects over the next two days from my RSD EDT teamies over at Airless Chambers. Please stop by and show some love.

I'd like to enter this into the challenge at
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - Although it was given as an Anniversary card, he is also my Valentine
