Stamp with fun challenge

Still no pink and green, I must really be sick of that combo now lol. I've made this card for my son's wedding anniversary next week following the sketch on Stamp with fun.
sk-anniversary-1
Good old Basic Grey to the rescue again - what would I do without these fab little pads. The centre mat is just cardstock that I have run through the Cuttlebug for a bit of texture.
sk-anniversary-2
The sentiment is actually one of the Autumn Leaves Ticketed stamps, but the ticket didn't look right and I loved the sentiment so just coloured the words with a Marvy marker and stamped then punched the sentiment out. I wanted a charm on but didn't have anywhere to dangle it so jabbed a hole in the tab and fixed it with a jump ring. Not sure if the charm is too big, might change my mind and put a smaller one on .... hmmmmm .....
sk-anniversary-3
The heart on the inside is from an Inkadinkado clear set (thanks Kim xxx)
sk-anniversary-4
