"Forever and Ever, Our Hearts Will Be True"

Hello fellow crafters,

While I was making this card, I found that I was singing the lovely old song "Forever and Ever, Our Hearts Will be True" over and over. September is always the most popular month in which to have a wedding here in Australia (although ours was in July), it being the first month of Spring.

I made this twisted easel card for Emily, a lovely young lady we have known since she was a little girl, and Phil, her bridegroom, who we have never met.
The card base and die-cuts are all white pearlised card. I cut the hearts with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts, sponged the edges with Versacube Petal Pink, then embossed them with Cuttlebug 'Birds and Swirls'. The scrolled border strips are cut with Cuttlebug 'Floral Borders', and softly sponged also. I used various Carl punches to cut the flowers and ferns, and placed a flat backed pearl in the centre of each flower.
I cut the die-cut for our personal message with Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Lacey Circles'.
I think I must have been having a 'senior moment' when I took the photos, because I didn't take a piccie of the card lying flat - the vertical portion at the back is also decorated - you can just see the tip of a flower peeking out. I present all my dimensional cards in clear acetate boxes, so when this card is flat, the entire 'front' is decorated as if it is a flat card. (I have not explained myself very articulately, but I am sure you will know what I am trying to say).

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
