Commissioned Golden Wedding Card - Beryl and Paolo

  Afternoon peeps.  My Card today is a commissioned Golden Wedding card, an order from a lady in my apartment block.  I make quite a few cards for her but they always have to be no bigger than A5.  This time she said she would leave the image to me and also the sentiment on the front and the message inside.  I didn't touch on the size so made an 8 x 8.  She didn't say anything about the size when I took it to her to approve but she didn't want a box made.  I explained it would bulge the envelope out, she said I will be handing it to them so the box will only get THROW AWAY!!!  She adored the card though so that is one consolation!!
