Congratulations card

One of DH's colleagues just announced his engagement to a lovely girl, both of whom we've known for a while now. I made this card for them, which meets my card target for my no-buy challenge to myself. I just have another 14 LOs to make, then I can go shopping again except for Christmas stuff. Yay!

It also covers several challenges:
ABC Challenge - O = One patterned paper (Bo Bunny hearts)
Colour Create - red, white, chocolate, pink
Cute Card Thursday - metal mania (the brads and the Chinese coins for prosperity and good fortune)
The Pink Elephant - ribbon
Charisma Cardz - this sketch:

It's a bit heavy with all the metal works on it!

It's all scraps as usual but I remember the patterned paper is Bo Bunny. The image is Hugs and Hearts by Rubber Stampede, coloured with Copics, and the sentiment is a rubber stamp I bought at Hobby Craft - there is no label. The Chinese coins I picked up from an antiques shop and the ribbon was in a laboriously assembled little gift pack given to me by A - thank you! The brads were from my stash.

Thanks for looking!
