Will she say yes!!

This card took ages as I faffed about the colours I am still not happy with the wall it should not be so orange but I have at least made an easel card;... my first.

I chose the LOTV stamp as my son was proposing on their holiday abroad and he had the ring with him....good job customs never looked in his case or the cat would have been out of the bag..so to speak!!...So not flowers or on a wall, OOpps not glasses either!!...but can you see where I'm going with this!!

My son does have dark hair and she is fair so good reason eh!!

My minds eye was used for the paper pieced hat set at a slight angle and for the bottom and middle which was punched with Martha Stewart's doily lace punch.
The boy's hair is decoupaged and the stamped image was coloured with copics, promarkers,polychromos and sandsodor....never can make up my mind!!!

Framing the stamp is brown card using nesties labels 2 dies, Pearls, lace, stickles and 3D gloss for the glasses. The letters are cuttlebugged with curls and swirls and baby face die.There is so much to write!!!! I will leave with a close up of the glasses!! Hope you like it an enjoy my muddling post!!.....especially as the close up is not here it's at the top ( I think!!).
