My stepson and his girlfriend recently got engaged, and I wanted to make them a very special card to congratulate them.  I really had such a hard time coming up with something that I loved.  With inspiration from Retrosketches #7 and Catered Crop Krafty Recipe Swap (use Kraft paper somewhere in your project), I think I finally got there.  Whew!

Thank you for coming by today.  Be well.

Stamps~PTI Love & Marriage, Scattered Showers.
Ink~VersaMark, VeraFine Onyx Black.
Paper~PTI Kraft, Aqua Mist, Everyday Blessings DP.
Accessories~White embossing powder, Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Scor-Tape, PTI Double Banner Die and Filigree Border Die, Twinery Caribbean twine.
