Sunshine Engagement

Hello, a very happy Wednesday to you and welcome :-)  It's a bit of an overcast and damp morning here in Melbourne so what better way to brighten the day than to share a card made to celebrate a lovely friend's happy news!!

The inspiration came from a couple of sources - I love this card by JAI's lovely Nikki .
And without giving too much away, the surprise happened on a beautiful relaxing holiday and this DSP reminded me of the view from an aeroplane window...and so the lovely story itself is literally behind this one :-)
The hearts - a little like smoke ones you often see in the sky....and although I opened the Sunshine Sayings stamp with a phrase in mind,  this sentiment just popped out at me and had to be used! So this card came together very quickly and was a delight to make for this lovely couple :-)

Card stock: Real Red, Soft Sky, Whisper White (thick), Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Gold Foil
Designer Series Paper: Serene Scenery Stack
Ink: Versamak
Stamps: Sunshine Sayings
Accessories: Big Shot: Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Botanical Builder Framelits (leaf), Itty Bitty Punch Pack (retired), Brights and Metallic Enamel Shapes, Gold EP, Dimensionals and a little Snail.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create something you like today too :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
