Welcome to the Family!

So, I actually made this a while back, and just kind of realized I hadn't posted it yet!!! My husbands older brother finally proposed to his girlfriend several weeks ago, so I had to make her a card to welcome her to the family! I really LOVE how this one came out!!!

I used Elegant Edges to make the shaped card, and Sweethearts for the silhouette image.

Added some doodling, and lots and lots of inking! Also pop-dotted the couple from the background.

Isn't that sentiment from My Creative Time the best? That is actually what inspired the whole card - amazing how having the perfect sentiment can do that!

Finished off with a bunch of bling using my Jolee's heat set tool, and a little ribbon on the side.

Thanks for stopping by! I am also entering this over on the Cricut Blog to celebrate World Cardmaking Day, as well as My Craft Spot and Celebrate the Occassion - both to use ribbon.
