My inspiration for this card came from AngelNorth.  I wanted to make a simple but elegant engagement card for a friend who recently became engaged.  She is a lovely girl who used to go to our church.  Her mother still does and is a dear friend of mine so I plied her with questions regarding wedding plans.  Her daughter does not want a big production wedding, she found the recent wedding show she attended absolutely overwhelming!  I decide a little bit of nature and a touch of gold and black might be the right approach on a card.

To create the gold rectangle I stamped the stamp pad directly on the card stock and the black image over the top.  A couple of mattes and a sentiment and it was done.  The One Stop Craft Challenge blog is celebrating its 100th challenge and the theme is “Congratulations” so I’m joining in.
