Good Morning Ladies

It's the most lovable Bears 21st Birthday from Forever Friends and over on the
Forever Friends Challenge Blog they are having a Celebration Challenge, you can design a card for any sort of celebration. You could be in with a chance to win a folder of Forever Friends Images from the DT Members.

I had a Wedding card to make for our close friends Ben & Cath who are getting married tomorrow, Rene is an Usher and has to get all dressed up (this is rare for him as the last time he was in a suit was at our wedding 2 years ago!!) He got is suit yesterday and the shirt doesn't fit - he can just about get it over his arms and there was no way he was going to get it done up! Major panic by the groom (bless him) but we will get it sorted later.

Sorry back to the card....

Here is the inside....

I have even made a gift envelope....

There was nowhere to write our message so I had to decorate to back....

Forever Friends - With Love Paper - Confetti
Bazzill Bling Paper - Lilac
Mirry Card - Silver
Embossed Paper - Silver
Sentiment - From Express Yourself
