Exciting news! My oldest son got engaged on the weekend. I am over the MOON!!
This is the engagement card I made.
Gypsy cardstock from Close to My Heart
Shimmery silver cardstock from Michaels-recollections I think
I embossed it with Birds and Swirls-Cricut Cuttlebug embossing folder
and the bottom was polka dot cuddlebug border embossing folder.
I placed a purple polka dot ribbon-recollections to join them.
Sparkle flourishes from Close to My Heart were added and a few single sparkles added randomly.
The oval was cut out from 2" recollections punch then stamped from B1418-Love Doily Occasions-Close to My Heart with a few sparkles added to the edge. The card and the oval were sponged with Smokey Plum from Close to My Heart. 
I next offered to help make invitations if it was needed and she said yes. So these are the samples I sent to them. Hopefully they will give them some inspiration,
Silver shimmer cardstock- Michaels
Bazzill-Passionate cardstock embossed with Bit of Paisley-Cricut Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Computer printed invite on the shimmery silver cardstock, off white Celebrate It lace ribbon wrapped around it. Hemp twine tied on with a Brides antique heart key from Michaels and a tag with To My Heart. Its hand done but I would type it if I was actually making them.
This one starts with Whisper cardstock from Close to My Heart and the Passionate cardstock printed from the computer but the picture doesn't sem to show the true color. It is wrapped in the same lace ribbon and has the three squares in Whisper and edged with Hollyhock from Close to My Heart.
The sand dollar and starfish are Sealife treasures from Mchaels.
The whisper cardstock base was embossed with Cuttlebug Wicker Weave border on two edges.
This one is Silver cardstock base with passionate cardstock next then CTMH Whisper cardstock computer printed. The burlap ribbon is from CTMH with Grey Metallic Bakers Twine from CTMH and the sealife treasures and a random shell from the dollar store.
This one is the favorite of a few people. The Passionate cardstock is embossed with the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave embossing folder. The siver cardtock is stamped with the doily from B1418-Love Doily Occasions from CTMH then I computer printed the invite on Vellum from Michaels, wrapped it in the hemp twine with a tag also stamped from B1418 and the sealife treaures from Michaels.
Hope these will inspire someone.
Thanks for stopping by.
And Have a Great Day!!
