Raiding the reserves.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Another card from my reserves again today as i went into work yesterday and then ending up having a 2 hour break before going back again until 10pm last night so no time to sit in my corner :(
I may need to work again today too.
So enough of my waffle and on to a card i made a few weeks ago for an order.
I was asked for a wedding card, cadburys purple somewhere on it but subtle???
So i used my tried and trusted Wedding design, which seems to go down well.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Eclectic Ellapu Challenge - Pink team - Hearts
2.My Mums Craft Shop Challenge - Challenge 21 - Dies or punches
3.Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Challenge 122 - Make an impression
4.Fab N Funky Challenge - Challenge 227 - Tic, tac, toe ( flowers, ribbon, pearls)

Products used are:
