Engagement Card

I am in love with this color combo right now! My friend Kim is getting married to a great guy and she is very chic and sophisticated.... so I had to think for a bit for her card. She had a party at a wine bar for their engagement and I knew we couldn't truck in some sub-par creation to a place like that! She is a Stampin Up demo and she knows a last minute card when she sees it! Of course I did my hand sewing on this one too- I am just loving the way it looks! Other than the sewing the worktime on this on isn't too much! The Joy stamp is The Angel Company and then I took another swirl from a different Angel Company set and filled in the top and bottom with it. Enjoy!

Stamps: The Angel Company
Cardstock: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, scrap DP (from a year and half ago!)
Accessories: green rhinestones, Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon, nestabilities large scallop circle

Very pretty Alison I love the colors you chose. That green is great against the black.

First time to your blog. LOVE the background! And that is one great card. Not the typically simple elegant american style card but a little more daring. Like it!
