Shimmer wedding

I was asked to make a wedding card yesterday morning to be ready for when I went to work at 4.30am this morning (Friday). Well I was out all day Thursday so could only do it after I got home. By the time I worked out what I was doing and how I was going to do it, the card took 2 hours to make. I know, ridiculous, but I'm super happy with it and I think the lady will be too.
The lace has been in my stash for a couple of months and I've been so wanting to use it. It's beautiful. I took a leaf out of Silke Ledlow's book and scored the card with silver pearls as embellishment.
Do you like it?
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.

Gorgeous! It will be treasured, for sure! It's amazing to me how long it takes to make a card, even a clean and simple one!
