A Celebration

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  A quick post from me tonight but I wanted to share our lovely news with you all.  Our eldest daughter and her boyfriend have got engaged.  They are hoping to get married in June 2015 so I will be busy with invites and everything for them.  We are so thrilled for them as they are such a lovely couple together.

We did know that Gary was going to propose as he came to see me and hubby last week to ask our permission.  He is so sweet and such a traditional guy.  
Over the weekend I made this card for them as we knew she would say yes.

I used a sizziz die for the lacy panel.  I kept the colour scheme to white and purple.  The backing paper is from my stash box but I don't know who it is by.  I have had it for months.  I kept the embellishments quite simple and used peel offs for the sentiment.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
