CAS and not so CAS ...

 There is going to be a wedding, and typically i have been asked by a few ogf the guests to make cards for them - I just need to make them all slightly differently.  So the brief for this one was, simple, elegant and has to have roses and butterflies (the bride LOVES roses and butterflies!).  I think I have managed the brief!!  The image is coloured in using my pens, and I added a bit of stubble to the groom, just so he looks like the groom in question!!  I love this pair, they do look elegant.  I simply embossed some of the white cardstock and scored the rest, added some organza ribbon and the slider (which I think small fingers have fiddled with as it doesn't appear to be as central as it was!!).  A few roses for the corner and the obligatory butterflies with gems at their centres ... and Bob's your uncle!!  I am going to enter this into the Kraftin' Kimmie GDT call, cos as my dad says - "you've got to be in it to win it"!!
