Wedding card for a Salsa friend

Hello again, another scheduled post!
Today's card is for a very good friend who I met at Salsa. She got married on Friday 5th June. The day started miserably but was then bathed in glorious sunshine. So I hope her ceremony was late enough in the day to have been able to enjoy it all the more and have some lovely photos taken
I created the background using Serif. I drew a couple of lines freehand to create a frame and placed the text to fit inside the die cut. Now, if i hadn't created the drawn line I would have been able to place the text slightly higher - hey ho Will remember next time! I turned it into an easel card because I miscalculated the measurements and was slightly larger than 6x6 I printed it out on my(cheap) laser printer and used my old Patsy May foil it machine. I used gold foil which doesn't really show up in the photo. The whole card reflects her inivtes she used
So, I added this little tag on the back
6x6 card blank
gold mirri card
Tattered Lace Heavenly Hearts
Sue Wilson 3D bow for stopper
