Personalised wedding card

I'm quite pleased with this one :)

Order:  Contemporary wedding card, not too frilly, for Aly and Ben.

The card blank is made from white pearlised cardstock.  I ran the same cardstock through my cuttllebug to emboss the lily (?) design and then matted that with the same cardstock again.  All completely white and pearlised.
I designed the 'Aly & Ben' on my new best friend (the Gypsy) and cut the '&' twice.  This is all cut from white glitter cardstock. This is all then stuck onto the front of the card with the extra '&' matted on top.

The dangly charms on the corner are part of a necklace I bought from a sale in Claire's Accessories.

I will be putting an insert in the card with the wedding date on the bottom right hand corner and think this one deserves a box rather than an envelope.

For once, a card that looks the same in real life as it did in my head!
