An Engagement

My brother made it official & proposed to his girlfriend (who I've always referred to as his fiancée anyway) on New Year's Eve....

Firstly Steph, thank you so much for your SWEET comment today! It really does give me huge encouragement when you visit my blog. And secondly, this is a GORGEOUS card! I just love your use of the impression plate - it makes such a difference to the design. I really must get them out of the drawer more often! And of course congrats to the happy couple.
