Card 1. Camilla Lino

Engagement cards are hard for me as we don't have them back at home,in Brazil, so I did struggle with what image to use, so I've decided to go very romantic
The message ' Congratulations on your engagement' is on the inside of the card.
List of material:
Paper and Cardstock are from my stash
Image is Lili of the Valley stamp and I coloured it myseld (hence the bad job...)
Flowers are from wild orchird crafts
The paper doilies Poppy craft cabin uk. Ribbon from a friend's stash (an online group had a ribbon exchange recently and i've received a lovely parcel from a lady in US) Card candys, Spellbinders circle and circle scalloped.

Card 2
Sinéad Keogh
I used a basic A4 fold on an ivory coloured card.
I chose the colours gold and pink to give a sense of romance.
The decoupage champagne glasses show celebration and the doves for love.
I made a flower and bow from material I had at home. The flower signifies the growth of the young couple and the bow is the knot that secures their relationship.
Paper, decoupage and peel-offs crafts too

Card 3
Shirley Power

Here's my entry for the Card Challenge. It's for a first anniversary for a young married couple so I think it's got the 'young' feel to it. The card was made using a black 7" card for the base. Then I inserted my black & white image block into a document and placed it twice within a six and a half square shape, once on the top left and once on the bottom right. That way when I printed the backing image it printed off in one full square with the white blocks automatically included rather than having to join four squares together. I then cut two layering templates from the go kreate frilly#7 dies and layered them up on top of each other placing some lace on two sides of the back image to decorate. Next, I positioned some ribbon down on the card and then adhered the layering sections down onto the card using 3D foam, thus holding the ribbon in place underneath it. Lastly, I put the two silhouette images onto the topper front using 3D foam pads. These silhouettes are from the marianne creatables range of dies. Hope you like it, it's simple but very effective.

Card 4
 Phil Curran

 I chose the picture of this couple whose footprints signify the beginning of the journey of their new life together.  The poem reads
As you walk
along life's path
Together hand in hand,
May God's blessings
be upon you
In everything you plan.
Happy Engagement.

I got the arch from a free download on Lilac Garden, made it bigger and printed on photopaper.  I cut out the panes and stuck the window over the picture of the couple with double layer of double sided tape.  I then mounted this on gold card, and then on to lilac card which I punched with a border punch and again mounted this on purple card.
I typed the verse in Edwardian script font 24 onto the blank page from the same download from Lilac Garden which I printed on photopaper, and mounted on lilac which I again punched with a border punch, and then mounted on purple.
To make the base of the card and easel I scored an A4 sheet lengthwise at 4cm.  I attached another A4 sheet back and front of the 4cm side to form the base.  The other side I cut at 21cm to meet the centre and scored diagonally to attach the decorated photo card to.  I again scored the smaller portion diagonally to attach the poem card to.
I stuck purple and lilac card to the floor of the card.  The easel hold I cut with a die cut and mounted with a double layer of double sided tape.  I decorated with a flower and attached a bow underneath.

 Pat Long
 I used a basic A4 Fold Card in Ivory and a purple contrast card
The photo i took myself, the frame is from Marianne Creatables range.

Card 6. 
Helen Gibbs

 C5 landscape step card. I used background paper from my stash with little birds on it, to signify love birds and tie in with the love birds on the ribbon I used which is east of india ribbon ( i bought the ribbon on ebay) . I used hearts punched from crinkley paper along the right hand side.The red rose sinifies rommance and I also buy my roses on ebay. My topper is decopaged and is a character called Boofle from docraft, who i think is very cute! To finish off my card I added little gold hearts around my topper and stickles to some of my birds on the background paper (its hard to see the glitter in the photo's, but it is there!)
Thanks, Helen

Card 7. 
Aileen Mc Kenna
This engagement card is for a friend who love theatre, in particular the latest play by Peter Sheridan: 47 Roses. We went to see it during the week together! I think she'll love this card! The image is of a vintage Butlins and decoupage roses. I cut the 47 from the programme. It's a play well-worth seeing if possible. Many of you will probably have read the book.
