All You Need Is Love

Good Morning all!
I have an engagement card to share with you today!

This is for the team at work to give to another friend/colleague, 
who recently got engaged! I think she's gradually coming back down to earth but 
she was on Cloud 9 for quite some time it has to be said!
The background image is a colouring sheet by the lovely Teri Sherman.
She offered it as a freebie to members of her facebook group.
I used a Chameleon Pen to colour the hearts & added a bit of white accent.
(I left the rest blank as the young lady in question has an 
adult colouring book & I knew she'd love the connection!)
The ribbon is from my stash & the hearts were cut using Sizzix Embosslits.
As a final touch, I addded a little heart button.

Here's a little view from the side too!
A few days after I made the card, I was asked to make a card to hold 
a gift voucher. I made this from memory as I didn't have a photo of 
the card at the time & I think I did quite well matching it up! lol

I forgot to add the white touches to the hearts before I took the photo,
so I had to go back & add that. To hold the gift voucher in place, 
I added some photo corners to the inside.
I'm pleased to say it was well received !
