The Proposal

Stamper's Delights holds a Progressive Freebie challenge on Facebook every month. If you make a card with any of their images then the following month you can request that set for free. I love Janice's images and you get lots of images and sentiments when you take part so it is a win win.

My Sister in Law has just got engaged and this was the perfect excuse to make a card using The Proposal which is an older image from Stamper's Delights and no longer on the website.

I have coloured using Promarkers and pencils for shading and hair details. The colours of blue and yellow have special significance for them so I used them as the main colours and gold as the metallic accent.

The heart paper is a wrapping paper from Paperchase. They have so many lovely papers that are really thick quality. For £1 tor £2 you get the equivalent of 8 sheets os A4 paper so they are fantastic value..

The mat behind the image is from a set of dies that have 12 nested scalloped edge squares that range in size from 2.5cm to 13.5cm so are really handy. Not many go up to the larger sizes.

I used the latest sketch 909 from Stella Says Sketch for the layout.

The ribbon is actually 2 ribbons on top of one another. The sentiment is a metallic Dufex one that has been in my stash forever. The champagne glasses is a mini embossing folder from Cuttlebug which has been cut using a Spellbinders scallop edge die. I embellished this with some gems and Stickles glitter glue. Finally I added a gem to the ring in the image as it had to be a big sparkly one.

It was nice to make a card for such a happy occasion and the both loved it.
