I had an engagement card to fit in with all the wedding invitations at the weekend (as well as other things).
I hate doing engagement cards!! I much prefer doing a birthday card as you can get away with so much more, plus I don't really have any stamps to suit an engagement.

I liked the sketch on Our Creative Corner, so I used it:


And this is my card


I'm afraid I need to smack my wrists and sit in the corner because I can't remember who these scrummy papers are by. And it doesn't say on them. But the black background paper is fabulous!!! It has a rubbery bubbly texture (which meant that it was a bugger to cut!) but it looks and feels lovely - it's just a pity the photo doesn't do it any justice! The black feathers and loads of swarovski crystals add some glamour!!

Here's the inside:


Because of the feathers and crystals, I decided to make a box for it.


Bit of a plain box admittedly, but that just leaves what's inside all the more exciting - don't ye think!!

I lined it with black tissue paper to add some more drama!!


I also have a baby card to show - but I'll leave it til tomorrow - don't get too excited though!!
