Forever Friends Wedding Card and Bag

The "spec" for this card order was "something like Forever Friends Bears".  I think I have got that bit right!   I also ascertained that the colour scheme for the wedding is pink.

I don't often buy "readymade toppers" but it was the only way I could achieve this card.   Card has diecut bears, decoupagd and mounted on stardream and silver mirri on white base card.  Various topper bits from one of the two kits I bought, plus ribbon, flowers, jewels from stash, and name tag created on computer and embossed.

Vellum insert, printed in silver and embossed.  Martha Stewart punch on top and bottom edges, and all edges chalked in pink.  A bought peel-off for the fly leaf.

and finally instead of an envelope, I made a matching bag with a pre-made decoupage topper  added, and ribbon handles to match ribbon on the card.  Instructions for the gift bag, can be found on  Suzanne's  blog.

Finger's crossed that my pal who ordered it likes it!  (Update - card delivered and my pal cried!  Tears of Joy thankfully!)
