Saturated Canary Wedding card - warning, lots of pics!!!

We had a fabulous family wedding yesterday-picture below of the beautiful bride, my niece Annabel with her new husband, Andy and their gorgeous boy, Samuel. 
Another pic of my three lovelies, below, Harry, Emily and Holly and then another of my two gorgeous girls!!

 It was such a lovely, relaxed day, and enjoyed by us all! 
So my card I'm showing you is their wedding card, made with a beautiful Saturated Canary image, Marry Me,  which kind of reminded me of our bride with those big brown eyes. 
I used an 8x8 card blank for my card, so I could add lots of bling, which funnily enough is the theme of the new challenge on the Saturated Canary blog, so I'm entering it into the challenge.  This bit of bling is an old diamante brooch, which once belonged to Annabel's great grandmother, so I thought it would be rather nice on my card. 
I've then used some flowers from Bo Bunny and The Hobby House, and added some resin embellies such as this cherub and some flowers.


I've also added some bling pins and some glitter to the flowers, wooden leaves, and corner flourishes ( which had first been painted with white acrylic). 
I've used lots of edging punches and dies, including this new Meridian border from Memory Box.  The postcard is a Tim Holtz stamp, the music, a Lili of the Valley, and the sentiment, a Cats Life Press. 
The leave flourishes are Cheery Lynn, and the papers a mix of K and Co and Memory Box.  I didn't take a pic but I even made a box for the card, because it was too bulky to go in an envelope.

Thank you to everyone for your get well wishes, I'm feeling so much better now and hope to find some time to come and visit you real soon!!
