Engaged......finally!

I LOVE this card!  Can I say that about a card I made myself? :)

It's for my dear friend Lindsay and Tyler who recently got engaged.  Well "recently" as in last summer and I've finally made their card!  I stressed about it.  It had to be perfect.  Not just any card would do.

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC106), borrowed Karen's MFT A la mode Cheers stamp and it all came together beautifully.  I used some Basic Grey patterned paper, copics, the gorgeous lacey circle nestie, some little pearls and some stickles for her sparkly dress.

It's fun when you have a stamping friend who has lots of lovely things so I borrowed from Karen again and used her fab MFT Rosette & Rolled Rose dies for that gorgeous felt flower. 

I gave it to Lindsay and she freaked....in a good way!  I hear she's even getting a shadow box to put it in so no sticky fingers touch it. :)

Cheerio.....Leslie
