My First Engagement Card!

My friends Annette and Tommy just got engaged and I'm so happy for them!  Saturday was their engagement party and I wanted to make them a card.  The thing is, I've never made an engagement card before.  Isn't that crazy?

So, I took Friday's Limited Supplies challenge on SCS and used it for this card.  The challenge was to make a card in less than 30 minutes.  Ack!  But most of my stuff has been coming together fairly quickly lately so I gave it a go.  

I wanted this card to have a "something blue" theme.  The stamp is from Studio G.  I put Stickles on the diamond, OF COURSE!  It has to sparkle!  And I colored the ring part in with glittery gel pen so it sparkles too.  The ribbon says "True Love" on it so I thought that would be a pretty and sweet touch.  

So, now I've conquered my first engagement card and hopefully will have more to do in the future.  I guess this could easily be a wedding card too.  Happy Tuesday everyone!
