An Anniversary Card

Good Evening All, Im so sorry to be so late today I have been busy again, and have actually managed to make two cards but can only show you one as the other is for a future DT Challenge, thats the problem when you have three challenges to keep up with you have to do your DT work in advance and try to be ready for them to be posted when the time is right, but Im getting there and I think Ive now managed to be a few weeks ahead or at least I hope so.
Anyway todays card has been created for a very dear couple, friends of mine and I dont think they will be peeking but you never know so I wont be giving any names in case they do. The image is one that was given to me, and I think it might be one of the Stampendous ones, (Ive just discovered they are by Stampin Up but have been retired), I love the dreamy look of the pair and thought it was ideal for a Anniversary card I hope you think so to. Anyway Ive coloured it with my copic pens and cut it out with my Nestabilitie Label Die No.17 and then drew around the die and cut it out by hand. The sentiment is one from my stash, one of the clear stamps and mounted on a piece of card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount in yellow pearlescent card and one of three papers from the Papermania "Rose Garden" papers the first one is a gorgeous pale green and cream, the second is a pink one and the third green paper and the fourth a cream one with a rose pattern on, the edges are punched with the new Woodware Crafty Edger system and a very pretty heart scallop edge. Ive wrapped a pale lemon satin ribbon around the edge on the right hand side.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created a rose spray and some punched out rose leaves arranged in the top left hand corner and stuck on with some silicone glue. I did pop some stickles on the petals.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
