Love Cows

Good morning all!
I'm so excited to share this card & the story behind it with you!

I've made an engament card!
The image I have used is Love Cows from Just Inklined
an alternative view on romance! lol
The papers are First Edition, Boho Chic & the sentiment was 
printed out using a free font called Serengetti ITC

Here's a closer look at the image!
Coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers as usual!

Little letters cut out with my Cricut & hanging from some lace!

Now let me tell you the story! Hee Hee!
A friend from work went to Africa on holiday & on Safari in the Serengetti!.
 Whilst she was there, her partner proposed! 
They were sitting relaxing with a beer after lunch &
washing their pants & socks then hanging them up to dry as you do, 
before heading out on their second game drive of the day, 
when the chap started to say nice things!
He says nice things a lot but ended his sentence with 
" & I'd like to spend the rest of my life with you!" 
The girl turned round to see the chap on bended knee proffering a cow ring 
(which he had given her on her 30th birthday!)
Of course, she said yes & they bought some Tanzanite to make the 
"proper" ring whilst they were there. 
Hence the design of my card!
I can't wait to see what she thinks of it! lol

Another little side view to let you see that I have used the sketch

on the outside & inside of the card!
