Oh so close, but not quite!

It looks like I almost made it!  I put this in the frame and gave it to my friend and her new husband after the wedding, but then told her I needed just a couple more hours to finish the backstitching to outline the groom and gifts in front of the bike.  They are leaving town to go back on the road (cross-country truckers) on Monday, so I will give her the completed project then.  Whew!  That was so close, but I'm still happy.  

I spent about 3 days making these cookies for her wedding; one day for the cookies, one day for the white chocolate diamonds, and one day for decorating.  She added them to pretty gift bags with gold Hershey Kisses that had a sticker on the bottom with their names and wedding date, all wrapped up with a fancy ribbon and placed at everyone's place setting at the reception.
