An engagement card for my friends son and girlfriend, they always put six red kisses in all their cards, and he surprised her with the proposal and presented her with an Haribo Jelly ring, until they could go out and buy the real thing, so I decided to incorporate it into the card.

The Jelly ring is in an acetate envelope.

Papers - Green Tea - Mindy Terasawsa at Designer Digitals
Flower - Cheery Lynn - Manon's Wedding Garland

I used a large green pearl in the centre of my flower and then surrounded it with tiny crystals, to look like those diamante spacers you can buy (works out cheaper this way!).
