Lili of the valley - together forever (engagment card)

WELL SUMMERS FINALLY HERE .....But for how long. Hope you are all enjoying
feeling the sun on your face.
So for this weeks card I've done an engagement card.
this card took me forever to make. But it turned out OK in the end..I think.
The stamp used is lili of the valley's- together forever  I thought would be a good stamp to used for my friends engagement. Wow what a rock she's got sitting on here finger. Not only did he impress her with this huge bling, But he choose the diamond him self and designed the ring and had it specially made for her. shes one lucky gal.
Sorry back to card...image was coloured using copic markers
I did make a list of colours used but its lost in sea of  paper/ card off cuts and a spilt pot of silver glitter on my desk. If said list is found I will update this post.
Question for you.... Do you want to know what colours I use ?
I know I do like to see it on blogs I visit just because if i am an stuck on a hair colour I want to create  some times I look on blogs to see what copics they have used to achieve theirs.
The shadowing was done using Polychromos Artists Pencils.
I used distress inks on edge pumice stone.
To bottom corner you can see I added a flowers from wild orchid crafts
I used  cherry blossom and roses in 2 different sizes then added the rose buds.
I cut off the stems so i could glue the flowers in to place . Some of the steams I removed and curled to make tendrils which I added the to the arrangement. I added the silver glitter to the flowers.
I also added a few of the magnolia heart swirl die cuts to the arrangement. Punched out a few small hearts , used glue pen to outline and added the micro fine glitter.
For outer frame I have used a Mather Stewart  around the page punch.
The inside I just made plain and simple.
used the around the page punch again added ribbon the same as the front of the card. and a couple of the punched glittered heats again.
Added a few finishing touches to front of card. eg sentiment, bow, punched hearts, flat back crystals, butterfly memory box die cut. think that's about it.
