Dynamic Golden Engagement..


This week's challenge at Dynamic Duos is an elegant one...

I'm continuing to make cards for my sister's long list and one that I didn't have any of was engagement cards...

When I saw the colour combo I immediately thought of embossing the heart image from You are Loved with gold EP so that's where I started. I trimmed it out by hand and layered onto some retired dsp that featured music notation. The background is some brushed gold card that I embossed with the lacy brocade folder (this is such a pretty and delicate pattern - love it!). I stamped 'Congratulations' from Love & Laughter in the gap on the sheet music then stamped the engagement sentiment (from the same set) on Very Vanilla and die-cut with one of the Itty Bitty Banner dies. I added some pearls to finish things off. I used the Freshly Made Sketch this week for my layout...

The rest of the team have some fabulous inspiration for you this week - make sure you check out what they've created!

Thanks for stopping by...
