Good morning all. Hope you're all enjoying your weekend, we're off to Edinburgh soon as hubby and daughter have optician appointments at lunchtime.

Finally managed to get my nephew's engagement card made....I've had bits lying on my desk for over a week but couldn't get the card to come together how I saw it in my head. Luckily everything clicked on Friday after the migraine I woke up with subsided and this is the result.

Using ivory Centura pearl card and gold Mirri card. The lovebird die is from Marianne Designs, all other dies are from Spellbinders. Ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I've popped up the dies on 3d foam to add some dimension to the card.

I've used a photo of the beach where the proposal took place inside the card.

The wedding is booked for February next year so I'm busy making some sample invites for them to look at next weekend, the rest of the year is definitely going to be busy!

Challenges entered:
Totally Gorjuss - ribbons and pearls
Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with ribbon
Crafting When We Can - personalise it
