Congratulations Anna & Brandon!!

Last week a very dear friend of mine said "yes" to the man of her dreams! I want congratulate them, Anna and Brandon, and wish them all the best as they begin planning their wedding and the journey that follows! May the Lord bless you both richly all the days of your lives!
I decided to make them a card and joined a couple challenges as well. Dynamic Duos was the inspiration for the color and Freshly Made Sketches was the inspiration for the sketch This is my first attempt at the Chalk Board technique and I can see this will be something I will use very often...I had so much fun!!

I loved adding all the layers to this card. the Gingham effect was created by inking the Stripped Impressions folder and running it through the Big Shot twice. Of course this needed some flowers which I used the Triple Punch Flower and the Boho Blossoms Punch. I loved this sentiment for this card even though it is not a traditional "engagement"sentiment. For me a card isn't complete without some ribbon! :)
Once again, Congrats to Anna and Brandon!
