New Begginings engagement.

Image- You and me from Tiddly inks

Challenges I am entering..
Morning Peeps!!
Its an extra windy one here today so I hope the little people don't get blown away when we play outside today as I am back to work today!!!

My card today is a bit of a special card, one of 2 I need to make following all the fabby chrimbles engagements my friends have had!!! Anyone who knows me will know that I absolutely love weddings and babies and think that they are 2 of the most special new begginings any 2 people can share. I just love that feeling of new and special.

This card is for Amy and Dane and I just had to use my Tiddly Inks You and Me image as Amy has the most gorgeous red hair you have ever seen, I absolutely love it! and I wanted some kind of shabby chic looking papers so went for my Laura Ashley ones.

They are all onto a kraft card base whivch looks so lovely with the little embossed heart and I popped their names and the date they got engaged ( christmas day!!) on the little tags, they are made with my SU Jewellery Tag punch. I put some embroidery thread through them and then then through the little heart.

Of course, magnolia swirlage was needed!!!!! and then I added some yummy pearl maker pearls around a few of the edges. there is also some sakura starburst pen dotted around the couple and some red at you spica highlights in Amy's hair!! I surrounded them with some frayed burlap and faded jeans distress inks too. I hope they like it!!

Well, Mo is exploring a huge tin of buttons my mum gave him yesterday, he has been sat there for ages holding them up to the light and flipping them over, putting his favourites aside in his paddington bear treasure box! who needs toys eh?!!!!
Right better stop waffling and get ready for work!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
