CONGRATULATIONS Lil' Sis!

Yay!!!! CONGRATULATIONS to my lil' sis RIA who recently got engaged to her man, IAN! We are so pleased for them, and of course, it gave me a perfect excuse to make a card!! As Ria loves frogs, and has been collecting them for quite a while, I searched for something 'froggy' I could use as an engagement card......it took a while, but I found something that I think is perfect.

I used a download from CMD and used part of it to make this easel card. I used a dark pinky/red for the base card, and layered it with textured green card.


The cute frogs are decoupaged with several layers, and I have added the names of the happy couple and my own sentiment on the stopper.
Then just a few paper flowers, coloured with chalks and held in place with brads, an organza ribbon and heart pearl gems to complete. Oh yes, I also inked the edges.
