Precious Moments Engagement Card


One of my workmates has asked me to make an engagement card for her to give to her boyfriend's brother and his new fiance. I had decided to use the same papers and image as I had used on one of the cards that I had done for Inspirational Card sketches and also use the same layout and sketch by Dawn Batty. Unfortunately I found out that I did not have enough of the papers left. I have had to substitute most of the papers, but actually am happier with the inside of this one than I was with the orignial. I have also used different sentiment stamps as these ones are probably better for an engagement card - the original one was a Valentines Card.

Inside of card

We were at a joint 21st and 50th birthday party (father and daughter) and half way through the party the boyfriend of the Birthday Girl took the microphone to sing her a song and at the end of it got down on one knee to propose to her. I don't think there was a dry eye in the hall. I have known Louise since she was a little girl and can't get my head around the fact that she now old enough to be getting married. I wish them both all the happiness in the world. Needless to say another card needs to be done this weekend.

Have a great weekend.
