Together Forever

My brother and sister in-law are celebrating their one year weeding anniversary on Saturday, and I wanted to make them a special card to celebrate this wonderful occasion. I love this Lili of the Valley image, Together Forever, and thought it was the perfect choice for their anniversary card.
I used Prima Moulin Rouge paper stack, which has the most amazing papers in it. The colors are so rich and beautiful, just lovely. I paired this up with a cream silk ribbon and added a pearl button to the center. I wanted to keep this card soft and romantic.
I colored this image with copics:
Skin - E11, E00
Hair - YR20, E50, E53, E55, E57
Dress - Y11, Y13, Y15
Sweater/shirt - E43, E42, E41, B97, B95, B91
Shoes - E44, E43, E41, E25, E33, E50
Socks - C1, C00
Swing - E50, E53, E55, E25, E57, E40, E44, E43, E42
I used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The large Gardenias I sprayed with Denim Glimmer Mist. Then I added a 25mm yellow roses, light blue cherry blossom, and 15mm yellow roses. I used lots of Prima Pearl swirls for the finishing touches.
The inside of the card is finished simply with more of the design paper and a matching cream colored silk ribbon.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
