Happy Friday everyone!

 I had a request from someone recently for an engagement card and realized I’ve never come across a ‘Congratulations on your engagement’ sentiment in any stamp set — has anyone else? It is very common in the  UK to send engagement cards — and I’ve lived here long enough that I can’t remember if this is done in the states — is it?!?! Anyway, its on my *wish list* of sentiments…

So, onto the task at hand – this card is for Make It Mondays – Glitter Strips with Scor-tape and also the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop as I was able to use this lovely scalloped circle from Limitless Layers. I was definitely inspired by Dawn’s card in the video and already had my sites set on using this mat stack frame for the card as it is perfect for a wedding theme! The card says ‘Congratulations’ and it is a little hard to see in the picture, but fine in person!

The colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues Challenge over at the lovely Heather’s blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

A challenging challenge…

To get back in the swing of things after the break for the holidays I thought I would use some challenges to get me inspired. I chose the current sketch challenge over at Card Positioning Systems and used the colors from the Just Add Ink. The card is also for the background basics challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey – love the cards they came up with for the challenge. I found these colors very difficult, but still took a stab at it. Here are the sketches & color:

I don’t know if I *love* the card, but I had fun making it and using some new stamps, dies, glitter & felt!

Thanks for stopping by – I really appreciate it!!
