I decided it was time to make an impression on the huge collection of 'freebies' I've acquired from various magazines over the last year or so, because they are piling up and many are really beautiful so deserve to be used.

The family 'jungle drums' passed on the announcement of my nephew's engagement at the New Year so taking my Newton with Heart stamp, (the most recent freebie), from Quick Cards Made Easy and some Simply Card and Papercraft free papers, I made an Engagement Card.
Whisper Brush Markers were used to colour this wee cutie and to add some faux stitching. I hand wrote the sentiment before adding some adhesive gems. Think I need to practice my handwriting as it's a bit squiffy ... but it all adds to the hand crafted look.
