Happy Anniversary to my Knight in Shining Armor

Another Monday with the Outlawz Greetings Challenges!
 This week is Anything Goes, my fave kind of challenge. I decided to make an anniversary card for my sweet hubby of 38 years. He truly is my Knight in Shining Armor, which also happens to be the name of the digital image I used from one of this month's sponsors, A DAY FOR DAISIES.
After coloring my hero with Copics, I fussy-cut him out, changed out his frame for a patterned paper one and popped him on some shiny silver foil paper (after punching the edges with a Martha Stewart set of hand-helds). Then came the jeweled flourishes, the hearts, the pearls and the sentiment (K&Co). Don't you love that patterned paper I used in the background? It's from CTMH.
I went all out on my card, even adding m'lady's (my) scarf at the end of his lance, as well as adding a feather (ahem) I mean plume, to his helmet. And my valiant knight is off to win his true love's heart. Silly boy, he should know he has it by now! He's much better off sneaking in to his lady's bedchambers and...oops, never mind. Some things are best left unsaid. LOL
My inspiration for this card came from a few sources:
We Do Dobadoo - Romance Challenge #2 
Open-minded Crafting for their "Inspired by a Movie" challenge (First Knight & Camelot)
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for their brilliant alphabetical challenge (I chose "I for Iconic-call him Lancelot, King Arthur-any guy on a horse wearing a tin can holding a long stick is easily identifiable as an icon)

Other challenges I am entering:
Left of Center Challenges - Layer It Up
Glitter n Sparkle - Pearls & Swirls
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Love and/or Valentine
