Commissioned 8x8 wedding card

Good morning everyone :o)
After the lovely sunny day yesterday it's like being in a different country this morning, dull and very windy!

A friend asked me to make a large wedding card in purple and cream so here it is. I still have the inside to do though!
I bought 8x8 card blanks and envelopes from Monk's Den in Ashby de la Zouch when I was last there. I usually cut and fold my own cards but at £2.99 for a pack of 5 they are very good value. I am not connected with the shop, just a very happy customer :o) 
The main panel is textured pearly card from Paper Adventures, edged with Martha Stewart PATP and the cream is pearlised card from who know's where and cut with Nesties. I made all the flowers from cream and purple pearlised paper and various punches. I printed the sentiment in Word using Bradley Hand ITC font. The heart is from a Forever Friends unmounted stamp set.
The recipients are a couple in their 40s who are both getting married for the second time.
