Engagement Card

Good morning all!
I have a card to share today!
It's not a great photo so I will apologise in advance!
I had to take the photo in a hurry & it was the best I could do!
Now, onto the card!

This one was for a friend/work colleague who got engaged over the Christmas break!
So nice to have some good news to celebrate!

I was doing a bit of blog hopping & saw this card
on Sara Davies blog & loved it, so decided to do my take on it!
The base card is 6"x6" Centura Pearl.
The sentiment was printed directly on to the card using a free font
 called Fiolex Girls
I added a mat of pink paper then added the squares.
I cut the heart shape out with a Spellbinders die, then backed with some dp from Lidl.
I used foam pads to pop up each of the squares.
The Love word is a Memory Box Die
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you like it!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenges - Love Is In The Air
Sisterhood of Crafters  - Love Letters

Love Is In The Air!

Whaaaaaat? It's Monday already???
Where did that weekend go? lol
So, that means it's time for the new challenge at Eureka Stamps
this weeks theme is
I made two cards because I was having so much fun!

I used the lovely image, Digi 14707 (514) Cascading Hearts
This is another of my faves!
If I'm honest, I smudged it the first time I coloured it & printed another,
however, I decided to use both anyway!
 The images were both coloured with my Chameleon pens & I added 
a touch of white using a Sakura Glaze pen.
The base of this card is 6"x6" red cs.
I've used up a lot of stash items on this one!
I added a mat of white paper & the DP which came from a gift wrapping kit I got in IKEA.
I've had it in my stash for a while but haven't used much of it.
The pin has been in my stash forever too, I added some beads,yes I've had them forever
& the red dotted ribbon is from my stash too!
The image is matted on to red CS & popped up on some foam tape.
