Happy Engagement

I made this card today for a lovely young couple who got engaged yesterday, I am seeing one of them tomorrow so thought I would strike whilst the iron is hot!!!
I used my Mr & Mrs stamp set and decided to used black and white with some bling, they are quite a young and trendy couple so I figured black and white was cool!! I feel so old when I keep calling them a young couple!!!!
I have stamped the floral stamp all over to make a background and layered it with basic black cardstock. The card blank is from Craftwork Cards, I wanted to used a scalloped card
I stamped their initials and used the & sign in the middle. The initials have been stamped with Schoolboo Serif Alphabet and the & sign is from the Mr & Mrs set. Used my scallop edge punch on one of the edges and a huge diamante buckle with some polka dot ribbon.

If you look carefully I have added a couple of diamante gems to some of the flowers for a bit more sparkle!
Anyway, Congratulations Adam and Lottie, hope you like your card!
