Engaged!

Have had this paper for ages, I didn't buy it but got it in a craft swap. So many times I have pulled it out to use and then put it back but today I bit the bullet and gave it a go and unfortunately I am still not sure about it. Its such a busy paper and the images are very big on it! But its done now and this card is winging its way to Australia for this lovely couples
engagement. The image is Precious Moments, coloured with promarkers and copics, flowers are from stash, the bow was coloured to match image but its come up very pink in the photo. I am entering this in two challenges;
1. Totally Papercrafts - followed the lovely sketch by Sue
2. Dare you to digi stamp - pearls and a digi
It is so nice outside I just want to go out and soak up some of that lovely heat from the sun, unfortunately I have a pile of work to do!

Hi Pinky

Sounds like we had the same problem today, I made one then thought it was too busy so pulled it to bits, then regretted it.

But I think your is fine, I love the colours and the bells on the DP are subtle and all blend nicely.

And you coluring in is superb.
