Delicious Doodles Challenge #2~Celebrations...

I know this image may scare some of you,but you know me & my skulls!!!
When I saw this image,I thought it was sooo romantic,it's called "Loves Faded Memory" & it's by Delicious Doodles (£1.50)
It doesn't require much colouring,so I just coloured the rose with Copics,added some faux stitching,SU ribbon & some bling,sentiment is a rub-on.
The theme at Delicious Doodles Challenge is Celebrations & I think this card is perfect for an Anniversary.
I have just bought the latest DD Skull digi stamp too,so gonna go play with it,have a luvly weekend :o)xxx

Any Ideas,Please?!...

Hi! I know it's been a while!!!
I am struggling with 2 orders for cards,I can't find the images.
1st is a 4oth birthday card for 1 part of a same sex couple,she is quite masculine,so her partner wants something kinda cutesy still,maybe a teddy,but to be holding a pint or a wine glass.

2nd is a wedding card for grandparents,so was hoping to find something maybe featuring an older bride & groom.

I hope you can help as I have wracked my brains.

Thanx :o)x
