With Love 'Congratulations on your Engagement"


My son Arron and Rachael are having their Engagement party tomorrow so theres lots going on.
They had photos done to commemorate their special day
 but only let us see a couple until tomorrow. Cant believe my last son 
is engaged and talking about buying a house.
Aaron is Elysha's twin and the youngest 
(by 10 minutes to Elysha) of my five children.

So we needed a few cards. This one is for his Granddad Keith and 
Nanna Nett to give him. Can show here as none of the kids look at the blog.


I used the bride and groom stamp from Stamping Bella but only used from
the bottom up, coloured with Copics and did her dress by adding glue and
then adding glitter and pressing it down. She is wearing a red dress tomorrow
so thought I would go with the theme here.

Nanna Nett loves bling so I added gems for the roses in her hand and a big
gem heart at the top there. 


The gold spotted card front is another of those Papertrey card fronts pre foiled.
And my circle double stitched die fit perfectly to cut out the window
for the coloured picture to fit. Such an easy card to make and put together. Finished off
with the sentiment cut from gold mirror cardstock.

Challenges:





Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Just the look for an engagement card. Love the image, and especially loved the stitched gold embossing 'ring' around the image. The dots background paper looks so pretty with the focal image and mat! Congratulations to the happy couple. TFS
