Another Engagement

It must be 'cos St Valentine's Day is just round the corner but love is definately in the air! Another request for an Engagement card, this time for the daughter of my manager at work.

I wanted to make something delicate and pretty rather than cute and I hope I've managed to do this. The heart shape was lightly hand drawn on the front of the card and then covered in tiny punched flowers. I used tiny circles of lilac vellum for the middle of the flowers then carefully stuck them on with tweezers. My cards aren't complete without ribbon somewhere so I used a lilac white ribbon to finish down the side. The result - a very clean and simple card.

I've entered this card in two challenges:
