Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

I do hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

My neighbour asked me to make a wedding card for her recently, and as she didn't know the colour scheme of the wedding this is what I made.
I went back to an old design I created  a few years ago as it was a bit rushed, and I wasn't given much time to think up a new design.
Every design of this is always slightly different in any rate.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
Now this didn't photograph well as the colour looks beige looking.
It was supposed to be white pearlised card from Crafters Companion, but it was more Ivory so how they can call it white I don't know. 
I used the Sue Wilson Heart Lattice embossing folder.
The middle die with the sentiment is a cheap Chinese one.

Thank you so much for you visit and your precious time.
I really appreciate all you wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Beautiful card and box which is great being white on white. This is always a difficult 'colour' to photograph particularly when there is a pearl finish. Some of my Centura card is 'hint of gold' finish which looks white for real but not when photographed or scanned. I think they do 'hint of silver' as well if I remember rightly.
