Wedding Weekend!

My husband and I will be going to our friend's wedding tomorrow and we cannot wait. Mark and his twin brother are Co Best Men which is super fun and this will be the first time in well a LONG time that the Kew adults will be getting out of the house sans the kiddos for an evening of adult company and conversation, PRETTY EXCITED!!!

Of course you know me, a simple gift card holder just won't do so I thought I would whip up a fun one this evening and while I was at it play along in a few challenges... 

For this card I am using the sketch from Freshly Made and the colour theme from Create with Connie & Mary!
