Sweet Hearts!

As I haven't posted much lately I thought I would share this card that I made for my friend and teamie Lisa who has just announced her engagement! Isn't it nice to hear some good news for the New Year!

The digital image is from Ladybug Crafts Ink and is quite appropriately called 'The Proposal' and is from a fab set of images. They also have a sale on this month with cling stamps 1/2 price! The paper and heart are from Stitchy Bear Stamps and were part of a Valentine Set that I won last year. I have added the wording inside the heart. The heart ribbon is new in my stash from Handy Hippo. Pearls and gems are from stash.

I have to say the stone on the ring looks enormous in this photo !!! hee hee - he must be loaded!! it was the smallest gem that I had and is Hero Arts 2mm crystals which will be available from My Crafty Heart Store which opens on 14th January! 

Colouring is a mish mash of Copics, Flexmarkers and Promarkers! and sorry I forgot to note down the colours!! 

I would like to enter this into the Challenges:-
