Our Best Man

Hi All
Here is a card I made for a friends granddaughter to give the best man at their wedding ...I matched the waistcoat and flower to the actual colours he wore for the wedding ...The wording is computer generated and is exactly how the couple wanted it written...I think it would be great as a prom card too .The papers have been in my stash for over a year ...they are embossed and look like brocade...The buttons and organza ribbon I used on the cravat are both  from Meiflower crafts. I marked the button holes with a gold pen .
