This card was created for my husband (today is our 33rd Anniversary) :-) I used the Mojo429 Sketch, the HSSIC228 Inspiration Photo and the WT565 "Lose Weight, Feel Great" Challenge (I did not use up all of my Outlaw DSP or Mini Copper Brads but it is a start) :-)
I am also linking to the Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge 2016 (BVC16), the All Occasion 2016 Challenge and the USEIT2016 Challenge (I have owned this Wolf stamp since it was in the catalog - 2002 or so and was never able to achieve a good stamped image of this main wolf).

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! This is one of my favorite stamp sets of all time. I can never, ever do it justice when I try to make a card using it. Yours is stunning. That beautiful wolf face really stands out, and all the stitching and elements just enhances it. TFS

Thanks Pam! I know what you mean...I tried before with our older inkstyle pads and could not get this image to stamp well for me...Embossing did not seem to work in the past either. FYI- the Staz-On seemed to work OK but I did have a very new ink pad.
Also, I feel that the image is spectacular except for the nose/jowl area (it seems a bit out of proportion to me- right side fuller than the left)...I darkened the area with shadows to try to give more definition to the jaw but I think it is just the angle of the view and possibly the white space above the nostrils (next time I may darken that area and see if that looks better):-)
Thanks for taking the time to comment and encourage me- have a blessed weekend!
Wonderful Anniversary Card for your hubby. Congratulations on 33 years! Your coloring of the wolf's eyes make him look real! Great verse to start the year with. Thanks for participating in our Bible Verse Challenge. :-) LM
