Once upon a time.....

Good Morning!!
Sorry I am late with my posting ~ I completely
forgot to make it up yesterday!! LOL
Today is the start of another challenge at Just Magnolia and
hAnglar and sTanglar. We want to see "love themed" cards.
May it be a wedding, engagement or just a declaration of your love!

My hubby asked for an engagement card for a friend and
this was the hardest card to make!!! I had to use this paper and
under no circumstances could I use a ton of flowers or ribbon!!
(Well I had to add that one little ribbon for some color!!!!!)


Making this card with fewer embellies was actually so much harder for me
and took twice as long!! No matter how long I looked at
it, it didn't look right!!! LOL Oh well that is what he wanted!
Here is a close-up of cute Tilda and Edwin!  Believe it or not
this is the FIRST Edwin card I have ever made!!


Papers ~ K and Co.
Stamps ~ Magnolia, Graphic 45
Accessories ~ Ribbon  and lace ~ WOC

Well that is it for me today!! The weather here in Texas
is getting so nice! We will be in the high 70's today
and for the week-end! I just hope it doesn't go back to
the colder weather again because I don't know how much
more my sinuses can take of the up and down temps!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week-end!
:)Kathy

This is a beaUtiful engagement card. Your effort paid off, I agree about those embellishments, this can take longer than that actual card and the cleaner and simpler, the card, the harder it gets.

Iulia said...

Your card is beautiful with stunning colouring and details. I guess it has quite enough embellies. Well, usually men don't like too many bows and lace on:)).
I love the cheeky lovers. They seem so very much in love (it doesn't appear to me as a brotherly love as stated in the stam name:))
You are so lucy to have lovely time. Here it is still snowing:(
Hugs to you, Iulia
