And Finally ............ well for today anyway

My Darling Daughter announced the other day that she and her fella are engaged. She has had a rough couple of years as she had an earlier stressful marriage.

This new bloke seems Top Brick material to me - you know the sort who would give you the top brick off the chimney! Well I like him anyway!

So I made them this card.

I combined two Tiddly Inks images into one as I loved her gothic styling, but the only couple she had were in wedding gear and they weren't quite what I was aiming for.

I have made the card in deep shades of purple as purple and gothic always seem to me to be ideal.

The gorgeous flourish is cut with one of the new Tim Holt dies, the larger flower is a stunning prima one and the three smaller were just from my stash as were both bits of ribbon. Papers are from Basic Grey's Wisteria collection, mats courtesy of Nesties and coloured with promarkers, with a touch of distress ink for the shading on the background, and more promarkering for the edge of the mats.

Hope to be back later in the week with a challenge or two, but I do have the dentist on Monday, wish me luck.
