2 in 1!

It's been a while...but I've finally got around to participating in a couple of challenges. First I took the colours from Makeesha's Inspiration Challenge. Then I used this layout from Friday Sketchers. To create this card for one of my two lots of friends who became engaged on the weekend (more excuses to buy pretty dresses...engagment parties and weddding!). It's not a typical Engagement card but I think it serves the purpose well. Again I had a play with watercolouring using my stampin write markers and ink pads. To add a bit of depth I also covered the word love in Crysal Effects. I'm no sure what Stampin Up stamp set the word Love comes from as I stamped it ages ago at a Stampin Night. I finally got to use the 5th Avenue Floral set to create the background paper and grabbed the little heart from the Cheep Talk set. The cute polka dots come from the So Saffron Pattern Design Series Paper Pack.

Hi Mel,
I love your card, aren't the colours fantastic to work with! I have just been having a sticky at your blog and it is just adorable. Great work with the nursery, I also love to decorate timber letters and anything else that paper will stick to... I will be back for sure.
Kylie.
