Congratulations Card

My mum asked me if I could make a special card for a newly engaged couple so I looked through my images and thought this one was really gorgeous and appropriate for the occasion.
I went for a Spring feel to my card as  it definately feels a bit warmer, I've even had some washing out on the line :o)

The papers are from First Edition their "Spring Drop" Paper Pad. The paper is glittery but hasn't photographed very well. I coloured the image with my promarkers and added some Crystal lacquer  to the little flowers to give them a sheen. I added pearls to each corner and a "Congratulations" sentiment. Mum loved the card and I hope the recipients did to.
Happy Crafting
