Engagement Card & A Bad Day At The Footy!

Saturday, 21 February 2009
Well, after my earlier comment about the big match, I'm afraid to say we had a disastrous game and lost 2-0! I've not seen my dad that animated in a long time, the ref was atrocious!

Anyway, to cheer myself up, I decided to make my good friends engagement card. Sarah's lovely fella proposed to her on Valentine's Day, on a long weekend to Scotland!

I thought the cute Penny Black "You're a Treasure" stamp was the perfect image for this occasion. I have coloured this with Copics, cut out with nestabilities and mounted onto a scalloped circle also cut with my nesties. The base is made up of white cs mounted onto red cs and attached to a white card blank. I have then cut a strip of white cs and embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder before mounting to a strip a red cs. This has been finished off with red organza ribbon and a pearl heart slider. As I didn't have anything that said "Congratulations on your engagement", I looked through my stash and found an old See D's set that had a beautiful sentiment "Wishing you a lifetime of love" and I thought that was perfect. I didn't want the card to look a little sparse, so the final touch was some red heart gems at the top and bottom corners.

I can't take any credit for this layout. I first saw it on Michelle's blog, who saw it on Zoe's blog! I just loved it and have been waiting for an opportunity to use it.

I am so loving making all these cards again and I've got all of you lovely people to thank for keeping me going, you're amazing!

Hope you've all had a lovely day and thank you for any comments you may leave, they're much appreciated.
