A Lovey Dovey Card

Hey Everyone

Today I have an engagement card to share... yesterday when I took Ruby to her Early Learning School, we met a new Teacher, (remember one left and they asked me to make her a card) well the new teacher, Di, loved it, and asked me to make an engagement card for her friends daughter (I think??) that has recently became engaged!!

So yep, I struck while the iron what hot!! and this is what I made, I hope she will like what I have done for her!!

I have always been a little frightened to use Blue!! Yep I'm crazy, but I have become rather fond of the B45, B41, B0000 and a bit of Blender..... It's just so soft and elegant looking to me!!

I have followed the sketch over at Whiff of Joy this fortnight!! I did follow it, except I did move the tag to the side, that's the only bit!! LOL Speaking of tags, I cut this one with my Cricut - Tie the Knot cartridge - that one has heaps of tags in it!! But I did manage to stuff up the size, on the first on - so that's where the 2 bigger doves are from!! Then I cut a smaller one.... oh dear.... It's going to take a little getting used to it, but at least now I have some instructions so that makes things a bit easier!! (my original one I got off my friend and it didn't have any instructions!!)

Here are some challenges I would Love to Enter:

Whiff of Joy - Sketch
Deep Ocean - Flowers
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbons and Bows
