Engagement card

My sister Pernilla's brother-in-law got engaged early May in Florida.
She wanted me to make an engagement card for the lucky couple - and of course I said yes.
Also - I would like to say congratulations to Pernilla and her hubby Lars - because today is their wedding day (well - don't want to say how many years they have been married now - but it's a long time. Another funny thing is that they also got engaged years ago in Florida - so I guess that Lars little brother thought it would be perfect for him as well ;-)

I went through my stamp inventory and found this couple from my Hänglar and Stänglar stash. They had not seen ink since last year...(I can hear some of you go: WHAT??? - but since they are easy to get hold on here in Sweden - well - then they are not that special - don't get me wrong - but it's always that you want to have the things you can not get hold of - right??)

I used the DPs from Inkido - the "love collection" - a lot of warm words - like Kärlek = Love,
Kyssar = Kisses, Vänskap = Friendship etc. I also added one layer of pink DP from SU.
Chalked all the edges with pine cone.
Cut out the three hearts with my SU punch. Added flowers, spacers, pearl hearts (on the green flowerwire), Bella baubles and then stickles on their jackets. Smooch on the heart - to give it more a metallic look (does not really show here on the photo). Highlights with white gel pen. Cut out their initial's with my QK alphabet - Eliza.

I even made the inside of the card this time. Not as lovely as my blog-friends Rach, Marlene, Judy and Iris does - but.... Used the left overs from the DP and cut out the hearts again with my SU punch. And I did put a handmade sign on the back - but of course I forgot to take a picture of the back of the card. You can't remember everything - can you?? *lol*

And now we are going to have a 4 day long weekend - yeah!!! So happy when we have holidays and a bridge day off from work.

PS. Sorry for the bright photos - but I could not get a perfect light....)
