Wedding card

A colleague at work has asked me to make a wedding card for her son's wedding in a couple of weeks. She didn't have a theme, but she did want it not to fussy. So i thought I'd play it safe and go with sliver and pink.

I have used Lili of the Valley die cut - wedding couple, paper from DCWV - Wedding Stack, pink card stock, sliver mirror card, flowers and brads from my craft stash and the sentiment i printed from my computer using there names. i have also used stickles - crystal on her dress.

She really liked it, hope her son does to.
