CardznScrapz layout Challenge

I am off to my friends wedding tomorrow so I needed to make them a card-CardznScrapz are currently running a sketch challenge where you can win a fantastic prize HERE so I thought what better time to join in the fun.

This is the sketch:

So as you can see I just mirrored the layout to the opposite side of the card-the papers and embellishments are by Bo Bunny and I got them at cardznscrapz. Then the lovely lace is from my friend Kerry who got it in Dubai.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year to all my readers,
