Good evening all

Today's card is another request from my cousin.  She has a little job babysitting for a same sex couple.  They have decided to get engaged and she has asked for a card to give them.  I have never done a card like this so hopefully it is suitable and she likes it.

I have started by embossing a square piece of white card stock with an embossing folder.  This has been layered onto silver Centura Pearl card and then onto black card stock.  Next I have taken a panel of the white card and embossed it with a Spellbinders Hearts embossing folder.  Using the Memento London Fog Ink Pad, I have added soft colouring to the embossing so that it shows up more.  This panel has been layered up the same as the background.

Using a the Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle dies, I have cut the largest size from white card which has the sentiment "Congratulations On Your Engagement" printed on it.  I have then layered this up to match the backgrounds.

The to images are digital stamps from Time For Tea Designs.  I have printed out two, coloured them in using ProMarkers and cut them out.  They have then been placed either side of the sentiment using Pinflair Glue.

Silver thread has been wrapped around the background and a heart placed on top.  The heart has been cut out on the Cameo Silhouette using a free cutting file from Birds Cards.

To finish, I have added black flat back pearls in each of the corners on the background.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
