Engagement Card xx

Thought I would show a card I was asked to make for my friends Sons Engagement.

Set of with just a pink & blue card then she asked for a picture on it, then there names, can I have some images on it and I thought have you seen the size of the card its going to look like a pizza!!! lol

Anyway in the end I really liked it was just something different!

The main papers are of course from Magnolia as are the divine images boy I do do these oldies!!

Lots of flowers, pins, flourishes with a Marianne die and the beautiful love hearts are a cherry Lynn die just perfect for this pretty card! Finished off with loads of stickles.
Paper pieced the images so they match perfectly and cut the names with "storybook" on my cricut.

I also made the box as it was far too lumpy for and envelope but forgot to take a picture.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Something Old (Magnolia Stamps)
Gingerloft - Anything Goes
Craft Your days away - New Beginning (Engagement)
CES - Anything Goes
Magnolia Down Under - Anything Goes
Simply Magnolia - Celebrate (Engagement)
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open (must have an angels so my images fit!)
Crafty Boots - New Beginnings (Engagement)

Thanks again for all your fabulous comments and I'm glad you loved my New Dilly Bean image she really is adorable and will be back with more.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxxxxx
