Engaged!!

A good friend of mine is recently engaged to be married, and I am soooo excited for her! 

Of course I absolutely HAD to create a card for the occasion. :)

I wanted to use the new "Watercolor Trio" set from the Summer Mini, and also incorporate the wedding colors. All she said at this point are a brown and turquoise/teal.

FYI: I'm not thrilled at the finished product, but there are things I love about it. :)
















I think what's bothering me is where the main image is situated, but I really had trouble placing it! lol

Tempting Turquoise cardstock is embossed with the BG stamp "Pretty Petals," using Chocolate Chip craft ink and clear embossing powder.  Main image is also embossed with same colors.  The {friend to friend} is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

LOVE the embossing, love the colors, love the lucious satin ribbon! :)  In fact, here's a close-up of the embossing:

















Well, what do you think?

  3. I think it is wonderful the way it is but if you are not happy with it try and add a little homemade shimmer spray to it and it will sparkle. Yup, I am addicted to this stuff and it usually is the perfect finishing touch to a card.
