Engagement Wishes...

Hi Again,

Another post for today.

This morning I had brunch with a great friend whom I haven't seen in quite some time.  She recently had gotten engaged so I wanted to make sure that I had a very special card ready for her.  So, I dug into my new supplies again and came up with this:

I am absolutely in love with how the new Fancy Foil Designer Vellum looks with Very Vanilla card stock.  To me, it just looks elegant.  I wanted this card to have a "champagne" feel to it.  So I stamped the wine glasses from the "Happy Hour" stamp set in Basic Black and Crumb Cake and then used 2-way glue to add Gold Stampin' Glitter over the Crumb Cake portion to make the glass look as if it was full of champagne.  I then added some rhinestones to add some extra bling and serve as the bubbles for the champagne.  I also took some Crumb Cake ink and sponged around the Very Vanilla card stock strip over the vellum just to give it a little more definition.

I truly had a lot of fun making this card!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

1. CAS(E) this sketch!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Sketch."
  2. Create a project using some "Sponging"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Sponging using the Sketch."
I decided to skip the "Sketch" on this challenge and on use the "Sponging" technique.

Here is the recipe for this card project:

Card Stock:
Very Vanilla

Crumb Cake, Basic Black

Stamp Sets:
Happy Hour

Gold Stampin' Glitter, Basic Jewels - Rhinestones, Sponging (using Crumb Cake Ink), Fancy Foil Designer Vellum

Thanks for stopping by!!
