An Engagement Card for my Son


I had good news over the Holidays. My son proposed to his girlfriend and she said Yes! My daughter is getting married in June and now he is going to get married in October. 2 weddings in 2010! I made the congratulations on your engagement card for them. I also made it for 4 challenges

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #34
The Play Date Cafe #10-dusty pink, brown and turquoise
Stamp Something-New Somethings
Stampin' for the Weekend-New Beginnings

I bought myself some stamps for Christmas and this stamp is one of my favorites-Together Under Moon 02 and the saying is Hero Arts. I stamped the image with brown Stazon. I colored the mice and weeds with Copic markers. I then colored the water, sky and moon with a water pen dipped in Twinkling H20s. I cut the corners with a Martha Stewart punch and the oval is cut with Spellbinders. I added gems and Dazzling Diamonds. Thanks for stopping by!
