Engagement

Hi Everyone, I have an engagement card for you today, my next door neighbour asked if I would do another 2 engagement cards, for another of her Grandson's, this time they were getting engaged in Corfu, Greece. She wanted on of them exactly like the last one I made for her other Grandson, but without the New York theme here. Which I did no problem, won't show it as it's near enough the same!

The card had to represent Greece and she brought me a tea towel from Greece, to show me what she wanted. It had black olives and the Greek Keys pattern. So that is what I went with and I also went with a Greek looking font "Achilles" for this one and put the Corfu map behind the images. I fussy cut the olives and leaves, for some reason Cameo was offsetting the cut, so had to do it the hard way! I'm glad to say she loved them both.
