Anniversary Card (Shhh! It's a Secret)

Yes, it's anniversary time again.  This year it's big one for us....two digits with a zero at the end.  No, I don't want to date us by telling you how many decades we've been married.  Anyway, it's been a colorful, happy life together so I wanted this card to reflect that.
I started with a card stock from the Classic pack by the Calico Studio company. I was anxious to break out a new Sizzix die, Label Window 3-D Pop-Up, which I purchased from Ben Franklin Craft store. Combined with the Sizzix card base die, this die did most of the work for me.
All I did was add some neon colored dots with Hero Arts Clear stamps from the Stamp Your Story set using Neon ink pads. Black ink was used to stamp the words and house with figures which came from a Studio G set.
 The card was finished off with washi tapes to add more dots and color.  All the supplies were purchased at my favorite craft store, BFC!  This card was easy and fast to make.....hope he likes it....but shhhh! our anniversary is not until the 12th.
