Simple Card for a very Special Couple

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  If not I send you some (((((hugs))))) in hope they might help.  Please help yourselves, plenty more where they came from.
Very quick post today, busy busy as always. Mind you better that than nothing to do. 
My niece Gillan gets marries at the end of July.  I made this card to send her and Andrew their gift.  We gave them money, Gillian has had her own house for years and has everything "Just So"  Andrew has moved up from down south, he also had his own house.  As you can imagine they did not need any of the "basics" ...  they put the money towards a new Lawn Mower.  
Their whole meeting and marrying is just a wonderful "fairytale" we are so happy for them.
Here is the card:-

Card base approx 8 x 8
Lilac Card
White card
Rose Embossing Folder
SW Hearts Embossing Folder
SW Bow Die
Pearls from stash
Computer generated Greeting

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
