Wedding in Australia.

My daughter and her family are all off to Australia to celebrate the marriage of her best friend.  My three granddaughters are to be bridesmaids and my daughter is matron of honour.  I think my son in law will be handsomely dressed in his kilt and will , I'm sure, be swishing it about to see if anyone can guess if he's dressed (!) or not.

I made this bridal keepsake for the girls to give to Fiona on her special day.  Her colours are black & ivory with leopard skin accessories.  As it was evening when I'd finished I took photos in the available light on my craft desk but the flowers are black roses and cherry blossoms, both from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The hearts, circles, scallop circles and flourishes were all cut on the Calibur with Spellbinders dies.

I would like to enter this into the following:
