A special card ...

Good afternoon from a very snowy Oxfordshire ... I hope you are all tucked up somewhere dry and warm!!  I've been trying to get the house straight all ready for Christmas ... something that I really shouldn't leave until December!!!  

I'm just taking a lunch break and wanted to share this card with you ... a very special card for a very exciting and positive event.  You see my daughter has just got engaged!!! I make lots of cards but this one is more special than ...

I ink blended a panel of card for the hearts and stick frames.  I created some washi tape using a mixture of stamps, tissue, distress inks and double sided tape.  I also die cut congrats four times and adhered them together to create a solid sentiment.

I used:
Sizzix Heart dies
Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die
Distress Inks - Salty Ocean. Mermaid Lagoon, 
STAMPlorations - Mixed Media Elements, Mixed Media Grunge
CUTplorations - Congrats die
Wink of Stella

I'm entering into the following challenges:

CAS Mix Up - December Challenge - die cutting, ink blending, stamping, splatter, tissue

STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge
