Wedding Card

We have been invited to two weddings in August so I have made an early start on the cards with this one for one of the couples:

The heart stamp is from papermania, I inked it up with tumbled glass distress ink and stamped it on the square of white card, I then edged this with a gold leaf marker and mounted it on the darker blue card.  I used the same heart stamp to create the left hand panel, I randomly stamped it using distress inks in tumbled glass and stormy sky.  I then used a waterbrush to gently blend it all together and once dry punched the leafy lace border from xcut.
I cut the kraft card shape using a xcut die and stamped the sentiment in black versafine ink which is also from papermania.
I created the panel at the top from a piece of the darker blue card and some turquoise organza ribbon.
Once everything was in place I added the three golden pearls to the top left corner.
So hopefully the newly weds like the colour blue!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
