Engagement card.

Hi Everyone, my next door neighbour asked if I would do an engagement card for her nephew, they had gone to New York and he proposed to her there. She wanted something to do with Frank Sinatra as the young lady concerned hadn't heard of him??????????

Anyhow, this is what I came up with, I'm glad to say my neighbour was pleased with it. Hope the couple are! I added part of the words from the song New York, New York which I thought was apt for the occasion, after all it will be a brand new start for them.

I had the couple image from the web a free download of lots of couple images. I added it to the Cameo and cut it out from black card. I had the skyline from the web and heat embossed it after printing it out. A few die cuts, and embossing and plenty of bling and it was done - ah! if only it had been that easy.

Everything went wrong, a bottle of glue run out, the other wouldn't flow, I put the bling through the Xyron sticker 3 times, as the first 2 had sticky on the wrong side, I had to print it out 3 times, as I cut the black card wrongly around the edge, then added it to the card upside down! It's a wonder I didn't throw it.
