Wedding card & matching box

Morning bloggers, as you may have seen from a previous post a friend of mine recently got married & I made the favour boxes for her (80 of them!). Well, below is the card & Matching box I made:

looks a bit wonky in this pic but it wasnt - can't explain that.

I am very much into ribbons and bows at the moment. The Image is Teddy Bo, the backing paper is a free sheet I got ages ago from Jak Heath, the flowers are from Crafty Emma's store and everything else is from my stash.

I didn't intend to make a box to go with it, but the card wouldn't fit nicely in any envelope I had so had to knock something up quickly before I went :)

I would Like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Teddy Bo challenge - Say it with flowers.

Thanks for stopping by :)
