Hi and welcome! I have a card to share with you today which I made to wish a very good friend congratulations on her recent engagement.

The card uses broken china and tarnished brass Distress Stains for the background, layered and spritzed with water and dried inbetween with a heat gun.

 The edging and the main stamped images are in Dusty Concord Distress Ink with the paler script stamped in Shaded Lilac, and the stamp set is IndigoBlu Sarah's Choice with a Stampers Anonymous flourish in the corners.  The butterfly was a free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine which I stamped in coffee Archival and spritzed with Sunset Strip Shimmerz Paint, and then cut out to stick onto the card.
When I searched out my button jar I had some buttons in matching colours so added these for embellishment.

Wishing the happy couple all the very best, they are lovely together!

Thanks for visiting today, look out for some exciting news soon and a chance to win some goodies!

Happy scrapping!
