ENGAGEMENT CARD

My friend's daughter recently got engaged.  She is in town today, so I made a super duper quick card.  I love the silhouettes on "Sweetheart" cartridge.  The balloons are supposed to be in between the couple, but I cut the image too big.  Tayler loves orange.  I  had this 6X6 paper pack from Recollections, it has lots of animals and 60's inspired papers.  I love the color combos.  Karen at "Little Scrap Pieces" is having a "Bling" Challenge CLICK HERE for more info.  The bling I used is iridescent. I also used a dimensional ring from Jolees.  It is silver with an amethyst
