Engagement Card #2

I didn't quite get time to post last night. We are visiting Tom's parents this weekend and time got away from me yesterday after we arrived. Thursday I posted a card for my son who proposed to his lovely bride to be last weekend. So today I post the card I sent to my daughter-in-law to be. While my card for Steve was somewhat serious my card for Anne was meant to be amusing.

I apologize. Somehow I got another blurry picture but I had already sent it off before I realized it. I struggled with the background paper for this card. I started with pinks but just felt it needed some other colors. After trying a number of designer papers I found this one. I like the chevrons. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

The image is from Beccy's Place. I colored it with Copic markers and cut it with Spellbinder's frame dies. On the pink background banner I used a technique that I saw this week on Kristina Werner's blog. She took a stencil and pressed Versamark ink through the stencil and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I need a bit more practice on this technique but it worked okay fr my first try. I think the sentiment is from Bugaboo but I can't find it now in my files. Go figure! I cut the sentiment with Spellbinder's circles and faux stitched around the circle. The I added the 3 pearls and the pink striped twine.

I am entering these challenges:
Today was a lovely day weather-wise but tomorrow we are back to snow. I hope your weekend is going well and you have time to relax. Thanks for stopping by.

I think that is a fabulous funny card! That sentiment is too perfect :) (I think you're right & it's Bugaboo - don't you just hate that when you can't find it?) Cool technique on the banner too! Thanks so much for coming to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches with us this week!
