Engagement Couple!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
I am so excited about this card!  As I was pulling stuff together I was worried it would be too cluttered, but now that it's done, I love it!
Isn't that so sweet?! I found the image via a Google search and made a few modifications to fit how I wanted it to look.  It's cut out 3 times, 2 in black and 1 in white.  The white is sandwiched between the 2 black cutouts.  I felt that gave it a slight highlight and looked the best.
The circles and heart in the corner are cut from my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge, and I embossed the large on with 'the Dvine Swirls folder.  The middle circle is a bit bigger than I had wanted but I think in the end, it all worked out :)
I typed out and printed the sentiment since I didn't have any in my collection that suited the theme. 
There is a small silver gem where the diamond ring should be.  I really wanted to highlight that area but my original idea wasn't going to work, so that is when I decided to put the heart behind their hands and the gem in the ring box.
I spun up some of my roses to place around the card, and included the larger red one that I had made a few days ago for my Valentine table decoration.  There is a red pearl embellishment in the center that gave me quite a bit of trouble getting in there...seems the opening was just a little too small for the pearl...but I shoved it in :)
I added some glitter to the hearts and roses and it was all done!  What a sweet card!  So love it!
