Two Hops in one day! First up is the Bombshell Hump Day Blog Hop!

If you're here for the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop, come back at 11 a.m. edt. Thanks!!

Gosh! It's been awhile since there was a Bombshell Hump Day Hop! Did you miss 'em? I know I did!

You should have gotten here from Raven's blog.

Rachael, aka Etsy Ketsy, set the theme for this Bombshell Hump Day Hop! The theme is "Bombshell Weddings", so I made an engagement card.

Here it is!

Close-up to see the "diamond":

I used the larger diamond from the Lady Luck set, the border from the Dead Necessities set, and the Congratulations banner from the Banner Sayings set.

The diamond was stamped, colored with Copics, then heat embossed with several layers of UTEE plus a layer of Polysparkle Embossing Powder. The "wedding band" is actually a border from the Dead Necessities set which was heat embossed with Queen's Gold Embossing Powder on Gold cardstock. The banner was heat set with the same gold ep on specialty paper that has a satin-like finish. The diamond and the banner are both popped up on dimensionals.

I used my Nestabilities heart and scalloped heart, plus old QK wings which were cut from that satin-like paper.

The sky patterned paper is much hoarded and adored Cosmo Cricket. I save every scrap of that stuff for sky scenes when I'm feeling to lazy to color. The card itself is white metallic paper from Recollections. The scalloped heart and the mat layer are made from gold metallic paper from the same metallic set by Recollections.

The card looks dull in the photo. It's overcast and gloomy here today. Oh well. Imagine that it's brighter. :D

Now that you've seen my take on the challenge, hop along to Mary G., who is the last stop on this blog hop!
