Shabby Chic wedding card

Evening all

The weather is gorgeous here and I'm so excited it's summer! I have SAD and the winter is long and difficult for me, so when the sun starts shining properly, I know things are looking up :) Also Sparky is on the mend, she's doing SO well on her three legs, running around the place! It hasn't slowed her down one bit. The stitches are coming out on Saturday, so she'll be footloose and fancy free then :) Thank you to everyone who has passed on their sympathies and good wishes to her, we really appreciate them all!

Anyway, crafty stuff again. I made this card a while ago, it started as a card for an order but then I liked it too much to use for the order so I kept it hahahaha. I then put it in my "card box" where all the cards that I'm too attached to to let go go to haha.
I used this beautiful LOTV image, it's a retired image. I think it's so pretty.

Image - LOTV
Papers - Maja Design
Flowers and rose trim from Live and Love Crafts
Lace, birds, cheesecloth and corner from Ribbon Girl
Heart charm is a Prima charm from stash
Coloured with Copics
