She Said "Yes!"

Making cards for happy occasions can't help but bring a smile to my face! I was asked to make a card for a friend whose daughter just got engaged.  I love to hear these types of stories and they always bring back such happy memories to me as I recall my engagement.  I know the sheer joy the couple must be feeling.  To be asked to share in this happy time in a small way is an honor.

This is the card I made for Courtney and Paul.  I used a lovely engagement ring stamp by Renaissance Art Stamps, and, to make it a sparkler, I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the stone.

I really love this sheet of heart paper that looks almost watercolored that I used for the background.  It was from one of my older Simon Says Stamp card kits.  I rounded opposite edges on the card and the background paper for a bit of a twist from my usual straight lines.

Wishing Courtney and Paul every happiness as they begin their life together!

Until next time!

Lovely card Winnie. The recipient is going to love it. So romantic with the ring in the heart and the hearts on the background paper. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Geri N
