Engagement Card

I can post this card now since the "party is over."  My niece got engaged recently and had an engagement party today.  It was an outside event and the weather was absolutely perfect.  Very nice day!  Anyway, I was real pleased with how this card turned out.  Have a look.

Cartridge:  Sweethearts.  This is a 5x6.5" card and I originally started with the guy and girl cut at 5" because I thought I was going to make this a portrait card.  As I progressed with my design, it looked better turned landscape, so I had to cut the couple again at 3-3/4" (I think; sorry didn't write it down at the time).  The heart is cut at 4-1/2" fit to length.

Paper:  Pre-folded white card and envelope (Recollections); Background cardstock is from DCWV All Dressed Up (pretty glittered design); heart is from DCWV Glitter Cardstock matstack; on the inside the red patterned paper is from DCWV Love & Wedding punched with Recollections heart border punch.  White cardstock with sentiment printed from computer (that font is called Fiolex Girls; isn't it adorable?!)  Red cardstock from the DCWV Shimmer Stack was used for the guy and girl with white textured cardstock from my stash.

Embellishments:  Red ribbon from stash with white lacy ribbon on top of that which is threaded with a silver textured ribbon from the $1 bins at Joann's.  Red adhesive heart gems also from Joann's $1 Studio 112 collection. Rounded the bottom corners.  Oh and a little dot of glitter for the diamond ring.  Didn't have any teeny tiny clear gems to use!

Hope you like it!!  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for stopping by, and come again soon.
