A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - Celebrations!

The challenge at a Spoon Full of Sugar this week is Celebrations and came at just the right time as my good friends Arline and Steven got engaged on Monday night on the London Eye! I am reliably informed that he got down on one knee in front of everyone and of course she said yes! Romance isn't dead after all! I coloured Simon and Lola with Distress Inks and if you click on the card you will be able to see the little gem on her finger! The sentiments were printed off the computer and I just added loads of embellishments and doodling too. The London Eye picture was just one off the internet.
Thanks for looking, Love Becky xx

Wow - fab card. Its a great tribute to his bravery!LOL. Love the images and mix of photo and picture. It works really well.
I took the hubby on the eye - he is terified of heights, but I was 7 mths pregnant at the time and I think it was more a case of a greater fear of my hormones than the height that made him do it!!! I'd show himthis card but he'd be sick!
