Safari anniversary

I was asked by a friend to make an anniversary card for her to give to her husband while they are away on a safari holiday. This is what I came up with, creating this totally digitally before printing out and matting on to a card blank:

This is for:

Fairies 20: celebrate
Crafty sentiments: love
Bunny Zoe February: hearts/love
The sisterhood of crafters: one for the boys
Crafty little fairies: one for the boys
Dare to be sassy Thursdays 217 it's raining men
Sentimental Sundays 195: make your own background paper (I created this digitally)
Card mania 41: use a sentiment
The paper shelter 147: animal magic
Crafty creations 257: keep it simple
Digi sketch: anything goes
613 avenue create 60: anything goes
Love to create 104: anything goes
Fan-tastic Tuesday 25: anything goes
Party time Tuesday 161: anything goes
Through the craftroom door: anything goes
Tuesday throwdown 184: anything goes
Card and scrap 70: hip hip hooray - everything can be celebrated
Sister Act 45: anything goes
DL.Art February
Inky linky 46
Make it Monday 180
