Hello Everyone!
Today I have a card to share that was created for a beautiful young lady who lives across the street and  just got engaged.  What an exciting time for her & her family.  I know the wedding is going to be super amazing so I'll have to be thinking about an awesome wedding card but that's a year away so I have some time!  LOL

 The dies I have used today are:

Sue Wilson Designs - Spanish Collection - Background

Avery Elle - Sentimentals
 I have covered the beautiful center on this frame this time around, so that the lovely script sentiment would stand out against the solid panel.

A little faux stitching with a white Gelly Roll pen and matching satin ribbon tied into a love knot was all that was necessary to complete this encouraging engagement card.

Although it doesn't show up well in the above photo, the embossing on this Sue Wilson die is beautiful and this die cut panel could easily stand alone on a card with maybe just a little flower in the center diamond panel.

Please remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop over and check it out!

And, don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Beautiful and elegant, Darlene! Love the faux stitching and matching turquoise ribbon. Would you believe that SW die is one of my first SW purchases and it's still a virgin? How could I have let that happen? Now that you've inspired me with this Lovely, I can hardly wait to use it! Thanks! AND.... I now need those Avery Elle dies! Thanks for showcasing another card I want to case! Hugs, de
