Happy 21st card

 I've been overseas for a short trip to attend a friend's wedding in Indonesia. Been back a few days and needed to get the house in order. I'm having withdrawal symptoms from card making! Needed to do a quick one for my niece's 21st next month. She went to Paris last year and I wanted to use the Eiffel Tower paper from MME Lost and Found. I decided to use the current Retro sketch challenge and combined it with the Moxie Fab World Gingham Card Challenge. Needless to say, the colours of the card was based on the pink/brown gingham I had in my stash, there was just enough for this card! Since I used Hero Arts stamps and mid-tone inks in this card, I'm also entering this into HA May challenge. Scroll down below for all the details of the card and I have some photos to share from the wedding in Jakarta.

Our trip to Jakarta
A very good friend of mine, whom I first met in 2008 in Malaysia, got married in Jakarta last weekend. He came to Melbourne last year and met my partner for the first time and they both hit it off so well that he asked us to come for his wedding. We have never met his wife, now that we have, she is so lovely and was very pretty on the day of the wedding and even prettier without makeup! My partner, Robin, was asked to make a speech at the wedding as he was the only foreigner amongst the 850 guests! We spent two nights in Jakarta and two nights in Bandung (3 hours drive away). We had a lovely weekend surrounded by great company! Thanks for dropping by! Here are some more photos from our trip:
