Hanna and Spencer's wedding card

This has been a very special card for me to make - unfortunately, the image is not as good as I would have liked.  Our oldest grandson is getting married - their invitations featured pink and brown, a cord "tie", and their initials so I incorporated those elements. IRL the bg is a pale pink - it looks more creamy here.  The main DP is a botanical print in pink and brown; the lace is pink. and the DP strips are also brown and pink.  I used the Swiss Dot folder on the bg.  Die cuts include spellbinder hearts, Cuttlebug letters, and Cheery Lynn butterfly and Blessings.  The stamped sentiment is Great Impressions (pretty old, I think).  I used Choc chip ink and heat embossed for a bit of sheen.
