My card is slightly different in that I was asked to make this for a couple who were renewing their vows after 45 years,  I used an image from Meljens Digis coloured with Copics and used some Glossy Accents on the hearts and just a sprinkling of glitter about.  The white satin finished and embossed bp is by s.e.i. and the pale peach paper is from the Isabella pad by First Edition, I used a pale peach paper and punched round the page with a Martha Stewart punch.  The corner die is a Memory box one and I added a few pearls to this, flowers are all from Wild Orchid with some punched branches and I finished with a ribbon and computer generated sentiment.  I used the same papers on the inside.  Sorry the picture is not very good I took loads but couldn't get any really good ones.  Do take a look at the blog and see the wonderful cards created by my team mates.
