  14. This is a fabulous card but I don't want to upset you or anything and it is probably my eyes but I have looked at this card in as many ways as is possible and I still feel that it looks like 2 women, I don't know a man who would wear a neckline so low, the only thing I can think of is that it is the bride and your sister, do I need to visit spec savers?
