Engagement Card

Well my brother is throwing a fabulous party on Saturday (I really hope that I am well enough to go) to celebrate his 25th birthday and his Engagement to his wonderful and extremely good looking partner Damion. They have been together for quite a few years now and they make such a wonderful couple. They also have their 2 little babies Manolo & Balenciaga their gorgeous little puppies. Can you tell by their name that my brother is obsessed with Sex & the City. So not only have I got to make him a birthday card, but an engagement one as well. Now finding the right image has proved to be a slight problem, but I think this little Penny Black cutie solved that. Then the colour scheme for the card was also in question, did I got totally over the top and make it all pink and sparkly (which he prob would have loved) or did I go more masculine. In the end I decided to pick the colours from the bottle of bubbly on the image which meant the card took on a slightly more masculine feel to it.

The image is Penny Black, the papers are Basic Grey Granola, DCWV cardstock, Dovecraft brads & ribbon.
Now the theme for the party is Purple & White, which completely went out of head when I was making this card. So I will now have to make sure that his birthday card is the correct colours.
