A wedding

A good friend of mine at work is getting married in a couple of weeks and as part of a close-knit team, we're all going to the wedding.  As she likes my lacy, flowery creations, I've put together this wedding card (using a Stampsmith Stamp) for all of us to sign.  

 
Here's a close up of the detail


As a memento of the day, I've also made a little lacy heart and the hanging has got their names  on one side and the date of the wedding on the other.  


... and I was very lucky to find the perfect matching box!


PS - for those of you who are aware of the different spellings for boys and girls' names, her name is spelt the male way(!)
