Engagement Card

I received some lovely news last week. My friends and neighbours got engaged,
so here's the card I made for them.
I made it 'clean and simple', using the gorgeous heart trellis embossing folder
for the background, and the heart shaped balloon dies.
I die cut the 'congrats' sentiment five times, glued them together to give it depth.
For the bow on the balloons, I snipped it from one of the precious hearts die.

The products I used are:-
Crafter's Companion - Sara Signature Love and Romance Embossing Folder - Heart Trellis
Elizabeth Craft Design dies - Balloons
Memory Box - Precious Hearts
Clearly Besotted Stamps - Congrats
Sentiment - Computer Generated

Challenges entered:-
