Happy Happenings - Colour INKspiration

Welcome back Crafters.

#Engagement #Love #Shabbychic #KOCreationscards #Handmade #Giftsfromtheheart #Madewithlove #Inspiredbylove #Bestbirds #Happyhappening

My family and myself have been invited to attend an engagement party in around 2 weeks time.
The lovely couple have asked for no gifts! So I found myself in need of a really nice card! 
I know the couple quite well and their style, it is very shabby chic...
I LOVE Shabby Chic...... anyone else!?!
I saw the colours from Colour INKpsiration's creative challenge #CI05 this week and thought it would be a perfect fit to create their engagment card with!
And of course, I made another card at the same time using the same colour scheme.

In case you can't see the text the colours this fortnight are Blushing Bride, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand.

Here are my cards

What do you think? 
The one on the left is for the engagement.

I wasn't sure about my back ground choice when I started, so I had a play with a couple of different things...For the Congrats card I used the Hexagons Dynamic TIEF as a stamp with Sahara Sand.
For the Bonjour Beautoful card I used the  Hardwood Stamp and White SU embossing powder.
Both cards have a sentiment from the stamp set called 'Happy Happenings'
I have added 3 little pearl beads from my bits and pieces stash to help finish the Congrats card.

Both cards have a Soft Sky card stock layer for the background.
The lace and the sentiment have both been stamped first in versamark then straight into Saharah Sand then heat embossed with Gold SU embossing powder.

Bonjour Beautiful

For this card I kept the woodsy theme happening by adding branches, flowers and a tiny little blue bird all from the Best Birds bundle. The branches and flowers have been stamped in Sahara Sand. The flowers have had Blushing Bride applied with a Stampin' Write marker pen. I then pulled the colour out  a little with an aqua painter.
