Wedding Card

Someone I work with was getting married last week so I want to make a card from myself and buy a present.  I decided to make an A4 card.  The focal image of the card was a gorgeous Lily of the Valley (LOTV) image that I bought at the NEC last November.  I have distressed the edges of the image with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked the edges with a Memento ink pad.  I printed off a pink and white backing paper from a Red Hot Bed CD I've had for a few years and complimented it with pink and white card I had.  On the white card I stamped hearts and horseshoes from a See D's stamp set. 
Inside the card I inserted images from My Craft Studio Cds but just kept it very basic.
This is the back of the card which I inserted a verse and again stamped the hearts and horseshoes.
This is the matching envelope I made.  I used a MCS Wedding Day image and then inserted the text below.
The front of the card is finished off with a large flower display with a sparkly glass feature with highlights of Cosmic Shimmer glitter glue on the flowers, other flowers, spotty ribbon and a die-cut sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

The recipient was pleased with the card but seemed a bit strange.  Originally her wedding was going to be over two days ie the Saturday and Sunday but then was changed to just one day but the Sunday.  A colleague told me she didn't want to upset me.  When she comes back at the beginning of August I will ask for the card and envelope back and will somehow alter it for the right date.  Not sure how but I will have to put my thinking cap on.
