Monochrome wedding card

Evening again :)

My beloved cat Scraps has perfect timing, she decided she wanted some real attention just after I'd finished this, so she came and snuggled up on my lap and we watched Pirates of the Caribbean together hehe :P

Here's the card I made, my parents are going to a wedding next week, so I'm on a wedding card buzz now, I've made another two as well that I'll put up another day. This first one is monochrome but with pink as well. I think I like how it turned out, it's not too bad anyway.

The image and sentiment are from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon, flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lace and charm are from Ribbon Girl, the papers are from a Papermania capsule collection pack, the leaves are a MS punch and I made the pins myself.

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers and the usual dose of Stickles, not very clear in the pic though.

A closeup of the charm, ribbon and my homemade pins. 

A closeup of my flowers, covered with Stickles too.

My sentiment, from the Love Sentiments sentiment sheet.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
Nighty night!
