Together Forever (For Real)

Just a quick post to join in with Unity's Friends With Flair.

My brother-in-law got engaged last week to a very sweet woman. I'm really happy for them...they were both burned pretty badly in their first marriages, and it's nice to see my brother-in-law so happy again. When they told my in-laws about their engagement, they both said they wanted to do everything they could to make it work. With that idea, I made a card to celebrate their engagement:


I used Unity's October 2009 store KOTM ("Wonderful...You") for the hearts and the sentiment. The hearts were stamped, embossed, and fussy cut, and the cardstock panel was dry embossed with the PTI Linen IP (squint, squint). The natural twine from May Arts finished the card.

Thanks for looking! If you get a chance, join in with Friends With Flair. Have a great weekend!

  22. Great card--I love that rich blue.

    I'm glad I'm not the only who feels squinty about the linen impression plate, yet I still love to use it and it does add just that little "something" to a card.
