Card for 118 Years

I bet that got your attention. A friend asked for a card for a party she is going to they are celebrating 118 years (the wife if 50 this year, the husband is 50 also and they have been married for 18 years).

The present is a big bottle of champagne, so when I was at Paperific on the weekend they had these wine totes, and I thought that is just the thing to go with my card. So I took it home covered it in the lovely silver SU metallic cardstock and some black (the inside is all in silver too), because the wine tote is taller than the card stock I had to join it in the middle and run a little fancy band around.  Then I stamped and embossed some black and white flowers from the Eastern Blooms set and cut them all out to decorate the card and the wine tote. I know I could have made a bag but the bottle of wine fitted perfectly in here and I would worry that the bag might not be strong enough.
