First card of 2015

and I had hoped to get this post done sooner as the card was made and handed over on the 2nd of January - bit of a first for me!!

Anyhow, this was a commissioned card for a couple who got engaged on Christmas Day.

For the main image I used a LOTV Romance cute square. Then Dovecraft and some of my new LOTV backing papers, all matted onto Centura Pearl hint of silver cardstock. I punched the heart border with my Martha Stewart punch. The roses are from Wild Orchid and the ribbon/gems from stash. The 'Congratulations' sentiment is Papermania - cut into a tag using a die that was a magazine freebie. The round sentiment is from LOTV and cut with Spellbinder dies. Flourishes were cut using Marianne dies.  I also glittered the heart topiary and added Glossy Accents to the wellie boot and watering can.

Box decorated with a Nellie Snellen Multiframe Heart die
