commision card for engagement

Good morning lovelies - my word isn't it cold? I don't think the grass in my back garden defrosted yesterday - brrr!!!! Very chilly - still everywhere looks more beautiful in the fabulous sunshine we've been having doesn't it?

My friend Jane asked me to make a few cards for her - so they will feature on my blog over the next  few days - the first one is for an engagement - well it was the perfect opportunity to ink up my stamp 'two hearts' from crafty sentiments designs - and here's what I did:

I stamped the image and coloured with promarkers then distressed around the edges whilst still in the spellbinders heart die. Then I made up the easel and added the heart and flowers and threaded the ribbon through the heart buckle. Finally I stamped up the names of Craig and Lesley who have got engaged!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Big Hugs
