Beautiful Flowers 2 Congratulations

I needed a wedding card and decided to use the very large flower arrangement in Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Flower 2. Because of it’s size I decided to use a #10 envelope and sized the cardbase to fit. I added a strip of gold and white foiled paper to the bottom and love the way it turned out.
