Commissioned wedding card

Good morning bloggers. it's very cool and windy here at the moment but dry. I hope you are all well or nearly there.
I was asked to make a green and white wedding card. What kind of green, says I. It's about the colour of the handle on that Morrison's bag, says she :o)
This is about the nearest I could get to it, I hope it's okay!


I used pearlised card from stash for the base card and dry embossed it using a brass stencil. I only had half a sheet of the green so had to get it right first time, gulp! Sentiment is heat embossed - thank goodness I had the right colour embossing powder - and cut out with Nesties. Punches used are Martha Stewart, Woodware and McGill with a scrap of ribbon from stash added.
 

The verse inside was printed in MS Word :o)
