A Special Card for a very Special Friend

Good Morning Crafters, a very special friend of mine is getting married next week and as I only heard through another friend this was taking place I thought I would like to make a card for her and hopefully send her my love and good wishes for a happy future. I have known her for at least 25 years and she went through a really bad time a few years ago and I happy that she has found someone else who she feels will make her happy, I do want to wish her all the best.
The image I have used for my card is a Whiff of Joy one and I have stamped it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I have used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.1 to cut it out and a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and i felt it was just right for this image it also has flowers around the edge and its been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a base mount of pink pearlescent, then on top is a one of two papers from the Confetti Paper Pack from Dovecraft, its old one that I had in my stash and its only used when I have a wedding card to make, actually my eldest daughter is also getting married in a few weeks time so it also came out for that one to.
The first paper is a pink and white stripe and in the corners I have used a Martha Steward border heart punch, this was stuck on the pink base, then on top is a second paper which is a white background with heart confetti design on it this was cut into a 6.75"x 5" oblong and then it was punched with the same heart punch I used for the corners and I have used the border punch with it as well.
Across the center I have used two white ribbons and attached them to the back of the first mount, I then placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used several sized roses in pink and white and beaded swirls in a spray in the top left hand corner, the final flourish are the pearl sprays at the end of both of them.
